Road to Wimbledon National Finals
Earlier this year, players battled it out to become Cambridgeshire Road to Wimbledon County winners and be awarded the opportunity to compete in the National Finals at Wimbledon in August.
Very well done to Jack S and Florence who represented Cambridgeshire at the finals and had such a great time playing on the grass courts.
In typical Wimbledon style, there were a few rain showers during the event, which thankfully didn’t dampen the excitement.
Both our finalists won through the qualifying rounds and into the main draw.
Jack came through his first round, beating Toby from H&W and into the QF, where his advernture stopped with a 3-6, 4-6 loss. Jack and partner lost in the first round in the doubles on a match tie-breaker.
Florence raced through her group stages with 3 wins from 3 and kept her form with first round main draw win. Sadly, Florence lost in the second round after a spirited battle. Into the doubles and Florence and Lincolnshire partner had a bye in the first round and lost in the 2nd.
Both had some excellent singles and doubles matches and learnt a lot from their experience.
In addition to the finalists, our County runners up, Jacka and Ellie were invited to SW19 for a coaching clinic with legend Tim Henman. Thanks to Jack's mum for the pics!
