Totally Tennis performance player and Sherfield School tennis scholar Liam Hignett has been selected to play for the Hampshire & IOW (Isle of Wight) 18U Boys County Cup team. Hignett and the rest of the selected players will be competing at David Lloyd Club, Southampton in Group 4b from Friday 26th until Sunday 28th February against teams from Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Berkshire.
The Hampshire & IOW Girls 18U team will also be competing that weekend in Group 2a against teams from Yorkshire, Warwickshire and South Wales.
Aegon County Cup events give players the opportunity to represent their county in team competition in national and regional stages. The age group categories range from 9U up to adults. The 18U County Cup Event is played as a one-off Event over three days during the last weekend of February. Forty-four counties are placed in twenty-two groups of four counties per gender. These groups are placed in order of the previous year’s results with Group 1 being the premier league. Last year Warwickshire won the boys 18U event and the girls winners were Yorkshire.
Congratulations Liam on your selection and good luck for the event.
