Canterbury Junior Tournaments a Benchmark of success

South Canterbury Juniors have once again proven themselves against the stiffest competition in the South Island and all players had great results at the Canterbury Easter Open Junior Tournament.Anna Cochrane was the star winning her first Canterbury singles title in the 12s girls singles defeating Megan Edwards 7-5 7-6 in a hard fought win.Anna has continued to improve and has put into practice what she learned from the January Nationals and is playing much tougher tennis.Tom Deeley lived up to his 4th seed and won the doubles with Sam Lane.Sam Lane lost his final of the 14 boys singles , this is one of those matches where you can learn a lot from a loss and so when I get a chance to talk to Sam there is some lessons to be learned and to take on board for future matches.Ben Deeley after a long lay off has lost nothing and will be all the more dangerous from this tournament.Duncan Rollinson competing with the green balls ( and I have more to say on the green balls in a future post) gained a lot by valuable match play.Jack Deeley won the 11 boys doubles and reached the Semi Final of the singles.Zin South won the boys 10s doubles and was unlucky to lose 9-8 in his first singles match.Above is a collage of pictures from the tournament with Anna Cochrane proudly showing off her winning medal.
