TENNIS - Pershore Tennis Centre hosts regional LTA event

PERSHORE Tennis Centre hosted an LTA sanctioned Learning Disability Regional Tournament last weekend as several local players claimed titles.

Some 33 adult players from all over the UK competed at Pershore Tennis Centre over two days with 56 matches played in total across three categories.

And there was local success for Liam Venables, Lewis Venables and Charlotte Bull – who all attend Pershore College – as the trio took first place in their singles category division.

Pershore Tennis Centre players Anthony Palmer, Carter Gough and Kaoru Tsuzaki also impressed as they placed in the top three in the Doubles Orange Ball Divisions

Cornwall’s Taylor Marsland won the Yellow Ball Singles Division One.

Head Coach and event organiser Steve Bauer said: “We’re grateful to the LTA for giving us the opportunity to put on this event.

“It’s so important that all players can experience regional events and be part of competitive sport.

“We have an amazing team of volunteers from Pershore Tennis Centre who were able to umpire the matches and support players to make this event a really memorable one.”

LTA Referee Steven Pilcher, who ran the tournament, added: “Pershore’s Learning Disability Tournament was up there as one of the best Learning Disability events I’ve refereed.”

Pershore Tennis Centre hope to host this event again next year.
