Former Elmsett Primary School pupil Oscar Cutting finished runner-up of the 12-and-under Aegon Winter National Tour Finals.
The 12-year-old, who enjoyed a fine run of form en route to the final at the National Tennis Centre in London , was beaten by Joshua Wilson from Southampton in a hard-fought final.
Cutting, who now attends Culford School, was one of only 16 players to be invited, having earned his place by accumulating enough ranking points from LTA tournaments throughout the winter.
Leon Smith, the Lawn Tennis Association’s head of men’s and women’s tennis, said: “To finish runner-up at the prestigious Aegon Winter National Tour finals is a fantastic achievement for any young player and I’m sure Oscar will build on this experience.”
n Sudbury Tennis Club’s Travis Ireland was put through his paces when taking part in the LTA’s National Talent ID Day, held at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton, London.
The 10-year-old was among 55 youngsters from across the country invited to the session.
LTA head of talent management Andrew Lewandowski, who oversaw the day, said: “Travis has performed really well and shown lots of ability across a number of different tasks designed to test athletic ability, coordination, speed and agility, as well as a real natural talent and love for the sport.”
