Stonehaven Tennis Club’s Annabel Burns and Patrick Young represented the North of Scotland county in the U18s Aegon County Cup.
Annabel played with the team at Edgbaston Priory Club last weekend. The team was promoted to Division 3 last year. After losing a few tough matches on Days 1 and 2, against Lancashire and Staffordshire, the team managed a comfortable victory against Durham and Cleveland on the final day.
This secured their place in Division 3 for another year. Patrick Young played in Sunderland. The team beat Northumberland and Northamptonshire but lost 5-4 in tight matches to Gloucestershire. This left them narrowly missing out on promotion.
Rosie Sterk was selected to play for the Aberdeen U12 team which won the Scottish inter-city doubles tournament at Scotstoun on March 1. They played teams from across Scotland such as Strathgryffe, Inverness,
Stirling, Dundee/ Perth, Prestwick, but their most significant win was over
Glasgow. The Aberdeen team only dropped 1 match to come out on top, with
Glasgow finishing 2nd and Dundee/Perth joint 3rd with Strathgryffe.
Three other STC juniors, Jodie Harris, Gregor Alexander and Lewis Findlay were selected to play for the North East in a friendly against Highland. Congratulations for being selected.
On home soil STC held a competition for its own junior players with 60 children of various ages taking part in the event on Saturday, February 28.
Many of the juniors were competing for the first time, making it a record number of participants for a junior club event. Well done to everyone who entered and congratulations to Daniel Tibbets, Brodie McAlpine, Daniel Harris, Cameron Allan and Lewis Findlay who won their respective events.
