To Will Taylor and Anna Carter Roberts for winning the Club stage of the HSBC Road to Wimbledon National 14 and under Challenge 2011.

The HSBC Road To Wimbledon 14 & Under National Challenge, now in its tenth year, is the largest junior lawn tennis event in the UK.

This year there were 29 boys and 22 girls in the draws, a club record. For many it was their first experience of competitive play and we hope that each and every player enjoyed their matches.

The boys final was battled between Will Taylor and Andrew Burnett, Will winning through 2-4,4-2 and 10-6 in the championship tie break. The girls final, played in the rain was between doubles partners, Anna Carter-Roberts and Alex Crowther. They played well in the conditions, Anna coming through 4-1, 5-3.

Anna will now represent the Club at the County Finals on the weekend of the 18/19 June at the Bucks Indoor Centre in High Wycombe. Neither Will or Andrew are able to attend as they are away on a school trip so Elliott Hudson has been invited to play. The winners of the County finals qualify for the National Finals, held on the grass courts of the All England Club Wimbledon on 15-20 August 2011.

We wish Elliott and Anna all the best during the County Finals.
