The  tennis 10s green dot ball competition  was a first for the ABTA since the ITF 2012
Rule change.  Though the number  for this performance level competition was low the quality
of the matches played was of a high standard.  The boys champion Justin Marcano (Jolly Harbour Tennis Academy/ St. Andrews )  was successful in his championship bid over Aiden Fuller (Halcyon Tennis Club/St. Nicholas Primary) defeating him 4-2.

The girls competition followed a playoff format due to the limited numbers.  Ashley Bersma (Halcyon Tennis Club/St. Nicholas Primary)was declared the girls champion after defeating Selene Kentish (Halcyon Tennis Club/St. Andrews Primary) 4-0

We congratulate all the participants in this competiton as only through competition can you
