Congratulations to junior member, Lyla Read (aged 9) who competed in a Grade 4 Regional Tournament this past Saturday and won the event. Lyla, initially a ‘Reserve’ for the event was offered a last minute entry and without dropping a set, was crowned Champion. The standard was extremely high and on her way to the Final, which she won 4-2, 4-2, Lyla defeated 2 opponents who had recently competed in the U10 National Finals. This was Lyla’s only third U10 Tournament, having previously won a Grade 5 and been runner up in a Grade 4 before Lockdown 3.0. By winning the event and ranking points obtained from doing so, she should now move into the top 30 U10 girls in the Country. A remarkable achievement after only playing 3 Tournaments. Her focus to keep up the momentum to try and achieve her target of finishing inside the Top 10 by the end of the year. Watch this space !!
