Josh clinches a nail-biting final

Have your say

A dozen young tennis players showed outstanding skills in a junior tournament at Oakham Tennis Club last Thursday.

Several clubs were represented, including Stamford and Thrapston, but it was players from the host club that dominated the final stages.

Josh Sennett won a nail-biting final 10-8 against Samuel Seecharan. Both players had reached the final unbeaten.

Benjamin Greenfield held off Daniel Bradfield to win the third-fourth place play-off.

Tournament referee and coach Richard Wilson praised the players and said: “The future looks excellent.”
