Ashburton Junior Tournament

In Ashburton today to watch South Canterbury Juniors participate in the Long Weekend Tournament.I hate to say I first visited a Junior tournament in Ashburton some 20 years ago when I took a group of Australian juniors to New Zealand.Back then the complex was all grass , now its one of the best tennis centers in the South Island with 14 Hard courts.The above picture is of Rebecca Gill ready to play her next match.Rebecca played the 4th seed Anastasiya Korzh of Christchurch but went down in a close battle 6-4 7-6.Charlotte Lamb lost her first round match , Hugh Rollinson battled to win a tough three setter whilst younger brother Duncan had a win in his first round of the 8s.The Deely brothers Jack and Ben will be in action later today as well as George Tarbotton.

Annabel Ellis is in Auckland playing the Masters series which is top 8 for each age group .Annabel is first years 14 and will have some tough matches over the three days.Annabel went down 3 and 0 in her first match today.

Above is Annabel sending down at serve at training.
