Wimbledon Wildcards announced
In a very challenging year both on and off the court, we were delighted to see that so many Tennis First Grantees, past and present, have been awarded wildcards into this year's Wimbledon Championships.
In the Mens' singles event, Jack Draper, Liam Broady and Jay Clarke (along with a certain Mr Murray) will make their main draw debuts and in the Ladies' singles event Katie Boulter, Jodie Burrage, Harriet Dart and Emma Raducanu have also all been awarded wildcards. This is a great achievement for them all and recognises all the hard work they have put in over the past few years.
In the Doubles events, Aidan McHugh makes his debut along with his partner Alastair Gray, and he will be joined in the draw by Jay Clarke and Liam Broady with their partners. Naomi Broady and Jodie Burrage pair up in the Ladies event, along with Harriet Dart (partnered with Heather Watson) and Eden Silva (partnered with Tara Moore).
In the Qualifying singles events, we are equally delighted to see some of our younger players being included in the draws. Good luck to Felix Gill, Aidan McHugh, Anton Matusevich, Jack Pinnington Jones, Eva Shaw, Matilda Mutavzdic, Eden Silva and Katie Swan.
The Juniors have not yet been announced, but we will update you all as soon as we have any news.
Good luck to all players and we look forward to watching you all compete on the hallowed All England grass!
