The Rushbrook brothers, Jack and Harry both had a busy tennis weekend competing in different tournaments. On Saturday, older brother Jack competed in the 10 & under mixed singles event at the Grade 5 Kingsley Indoor Super Saturday Tournament held at Kingsley Dome in Borden, which was played in the compass draw format. In the quarter finals, Jack was beaten by Harry Blair in a very close match not reflected by the final score of 4-2 and Jack moved into the Consolation Draw. In the semi-finals Jack beat Andrew Penney 4-2 followed by Harry Morrogh in the Consolation final 4-2 to win the event.
