Grantees take titles in Loughborough

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

There were plenty of Tennis First Grantees in action at the Loughborough ITF J4 events last week and it was fantastic to see so many competing at such a high level.

In the Girls' events, it was a tremendous week for Isabelle Lacy (pictured left) who beat former Grantee, Talia Neilson Gatenby in the final 7-5, 6-3 and who also reached the Doubles finals with her partner and fellow Grantee, Guilia Lesa.

Abby Kelliher and Rana Akua Stoiber took the title in the Girls' Doubles event and Issey Purser and Abby Kelliher both reached the semi finals of the Singles.

In the Boys' events, it was also a Tennis First final, with Phoenix Weir beating Louis Bowden 6-3, 6-4 in the Singles event, whilst Matthew Rankin and Sam Reeve took the Doubles title.

Some great performances on show and well done to all of you!
