Quorn serve up treat for young Wisbech player
Ollie Beck and his father 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 June 9-17.
In the first round the children were divided into six groups of four couples.
Ollie won his first two matches and lost one match against a couple that eventually went on to be runners-up overall.
In the second half of the competition Ollie won one 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 his father 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.
