Sebastian Makes County Cup

Sebastian Sheldon (pictured third from left) who trains at Henley Tennis Club made it through County trials to make his first U9 County Cup appearance representing Tennis Oxfordshire.  Sebastian who is part of the Henley Tennis Club Junior Team, made it through a tough county trails selection over the winter and was selected in January this year to represent Tennis Oxfordshire.

The County Cup was held last Sunday at Oxstalls Sports Park, Gloucestershire.  Although the boys team came 5th overall they fought well in all matches with some outstanding tennis on display and matches going either way to the end.  One match a tight 9-10 loss on a sudden death point to South Wales.  Coach Tom Scott said, “This is a great experience for the young team and sure we will be hearing more of them in the future. At the same event the Tennis Oxfordshire Girls team played some brilliant tennis securing doubles wins to finish a mighty 2nd.  A fantastic achievement for Sebastian to play for the County and with the developments to Henley Tennis Club and its programme he has certainly set a foundation for future Henley Tennis stars!”
