KES Wimbledon Star

Posted on: 04/09/2018

Olivia in Year 9 took part in the Road to Wimbledon National 14 and Under Challenge Finals in the summer and finished 9th out of 48 girls from the UK. The tournament was held at the All England Club in Wimbledon. 

After winning in the county finals, Olivia was able to play on grass at this iconic venue and was knocked out by the number two seed in the second round.

She said of the experience: ‘It was a fantastic opportunity for me because I’d never been to Wimbledon before. it was so great to know the pros have played there and it inspired me to play harder and go for more shots. I have been playing tennis for ten years now and I hope to one day return to Wimbledon in the Championships!’
