TOP ranked Natasha Scott will be representing Huntingdonshire Tennis Club in the prestigious Road to Wimbledon competition on 19 and 20 July.
The 12-year-old is rated number one in the county for her age and as such is an obvious choice to contest one of the largest junior competitions in British tennis. One which gives aspiring youngsters the opportunity to progress through to the world famous grass courts in SW19.
Should she progress from the county finals, the nationals are scheduled for the week 11 to 16 August.
The Huntingdon club provides weekly coaching for all ages and abilities (from two years old to adults). The programme has brought on a number of competition players who figure in district and area events.
The club has been working with a number of local schools over the last year and offered free coaching for five weeks, both in the school and back at the club.
