EMMA RADUCANU'S RUN AT WIMBLEDON CONTINUES!

Well done to Emma Raducanu for knocking out the number 11th seed L Fernandez of Canada 6-2, 6-4 in the 2nd round of the Girls Wimbledon Junior Championship. She will now play Joanna Garland from Taiwan for a place in the 1/4 finals. Go, go, go Emma, we wish you good luck!

Pictured here before and during her match (amazing technique and knee bend on Emma's serve) - but can anyone guess the Sundridge Park members who instead of watching the match on Centre Court decided to support Emma instead and were picked up on TV!

SUNDRIDGE PARK HALF TERM CAMPS WERE SO THE PLACE TO BE!

Despite the weather early in the week it didn't stop our juniors from coming in to the half term camps. The team competition came right down to the wire with the RED Team just nipping it in the last relay! It was also Luciana's birthday on Friday and captured a nice picture of her and all her friends at the end of the camps. I immensely enjoy the camps, we have so much fun and the children make many new friends....roll on the summer holidays, we have 5 more weeks of them!

Huge congrats in order for Daisy and Sadie for beating Sevenoaks in the girls 12 and under County Inter Club match earlier today. Sundridge Park won the match 2-1.

HADI WINS THE ROAD TO WIMBLEDON AT SUNDRIDGE PARK!

In the glorious sunshine at Sundridge Park yesterday afternoon 8 children battled it out to qualify for the County Finals in July. There were some fantastic matches, all played in great spirit. The final was a total cliff-hanger with Hadi just edging out Torin in a brilliant final 7-6. Full credit to both of the boys for putting on a great final and to all the other children that played. We all wish Hadi the best of luck in the County Finals and who knows....could Wimbledon be the last stop on the line for him!

So Proud Of The Orange Ball Matchplay Performances!!

Eleven of our little rising stars turned out this afternoon for the Orange Ball Matchplay. For three of the children it was their first competitive experience. I was really proud of how you all played and more importantly how you all carried yourselves. Well done to Rares for winning all but one of his matches! None of the children wanted to finish they were enjoying themselves so much! Everyone played a minimum of 8 matches, so watch out for some ratings going up! A good and committed turn out from their parents too as it was little bit chilly!!
