The Chandrasekars have won the opportunity to spend a day at a LTA grass court major event in June. In addition to watching all the on court action, they will also have the chance to play against other winners on the day.
Bromilow said of the event, “I would like to congratulate all of the competitors and especially Neel and his father for winning this Years Quorn Family Cup” he added, “The winning pair will now enjoy one of the LTAs premier grass court events and play against other event winners. Good Luck!!”

Tip 8: Hitting a more aggressive slice backhand
Set up with the racket higher and take the ball early. Hit through the ball with good racket head speed. This will help you hit the ball deeper and with a lower flight path.
Wrong: Racket too low and elbow is tucked in to the body
Correct: Good set up with the racket higher
