The HSBC Road to Wimbledon competition is the biggest junior tournament in British Tennis and gives all 14 and under players the opportunity to progress through to compete on the world famous grass courts at Wimbledon. Local clubs, parks and schools are encouraged to enter and stage a tournament for their junior players and Totally Tennis is a keen supporter of this annual tournament having had many squad players get through to play at SW19 in the past.
Young lady of many talents, here’s Isla with her U13 Basingstoke Schools Table Tennis Winner’s Trophy
