First Orange Matchplay For Dolman

After competing in the 8 & under singles at the Berkshire Junior County Championships 2018 at the end of the summer (where he won two of his four matches), Totally Tennis mini performance player Harry Dolman played in his first orange matchplay at David Lloyd Southampton West End at the beginning of this month. In the group stages he competed in Box C and won all his five matches beating Freddie Bosworth 10-1, Tom Casella 11-9,  George Conway 10-3,  Elliot Latham 10-6 and Scott Yates 10-5.

Dolman then competed in the Portsmouth Tennis Club 9 & under Winter Regional Tour and although he lost all his group matches he paid really well against more experienced players. He has also been selected for county training which is great news considering he has only just started competing.

Coach Jordan Frederick said, “Harry played his first grade 3 at Portsmouth Tennis Centre, although he didn’t win a match he came very close to winning most of them and was competing with some of the best orange ball players in the southwest.” he added, “I have been working with Harry for the last year now, his improvement rate has been incredible and always has a great attitude while training and competing.”

Dolman will next compete in the East Winter County Tour – David Lloyd Royal Berkshire 9 & under Boys singles event (20th October) followed by the David Lloyd Southampton October Half Term Tournament 2018 (from 21st October).
