Gloucestershire glory for Ashton tennis youngsters

Evesham Editorial 13th Jul, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

A QUARTET of children from Ashton-under-Hill First School proved they were aces on the court as they were crowned Gloucestershire county tennis champions.

The fab four – Charlie, Kendra, Seth and Beth – qualified for the Gloucestershire County Tennis Championships by winning their regional heat in the year 3/4 category at Beckford Tennis Club, making their way through to the county finals held at Oxstalls Sports Park.

It was a very closely fought final but they managed to hold off the tough competition from schools around the county and claim victory.

Beckford tennis coach Simon Filiatrault has been coming into school to do coaching sessions with the children, which has proved to be very successful, and he has inspired a lot of them to take up tennis outside of school.
