Quorn Family Tennis Finals Nottingham Tennis Centre – 10th June 2018

Ollie Beck and his Dad James travelled to Nottingham Tennis Centre representing Wisbech Tennis Club as part of the Quorn Family Tennis Finals.  This was played during the Nature Valley Nottingham Open which is being played from 9th-17th June. In the first round the children were divided into 6 groups of 4 couples.  Ollie won his first 2 matches and lost 1 match against a couple that eventually went on to be runners up overall.  In the second half of the competition Ollie won 1 match and lost the other.  The standard was pretty high and Ollie’s group all played lovely tennis with lots of good rallies.
Following the tournament they both got to look around all the courts and saw several professional women playing.  Ollie also met Tobias Simon a 27 year old German Tennis player who had won his match earlier in the day.
Both Ollie and Dad James had a brilliant day at the Nottingham Tennis Centre and were grateful to WTC for organising the event to give them the opportunity to go.
