Back to back titles for Klugman and Pow

Playing in her very first ITF junior event in Loughborough, Hannah claimed her maiden title. In the final Hannah won in straight sets against a French opponent 6-4, 6-2. An incredible achievement at just 13 years old, congratulations.

The following week, Hannah continued her success taking another title without dropping a set. In the final it was a battle of grantees against Hephzibah Oluwadare. Hannah came out on top 6-1, 6-3.

On the doubles court, Hannah Smith reached the final with her partner Tabitha Holmes losing out to a Polish pair 6-4, 6-3.

Luca Pow had a successful few weeks claiming two titles of his own. Without losing a set, Luca came through the first week in a final against William Jansen 6-3, 6-4 and only a week later they came face to face yet again on the court with Luca pulling through 6-1, 6-0. Luca also reached the final of the doubles falling in a third set championship tiebreak 10-3. What a couple of weeks of high level tennis for our grantees.

Congratulations on very impressive performances and keep up the good work.
