The juniors will proceed to play at Hills Road Cambridge in the county stage of the competition, which will be held in July.

Last year Sophie Tjurina, who trains at LK Tennis Academy, won the girls’ county stage and had an amazing time playing at Wimbledon for a week.

Well done to everyone who took part this year; there were some fantastic matches.
