Norfolk’s WinSum Junior Tennis League loses some interest

Norfolk Lawn Tennis Association's WinSum Junior Tennis League awards were handed out at the East Anglia Tennis & Squash Club.

Organiser Diane Bush welcomed the winners and asked players to spread the word as numbers have dwindled.

The season saw a new format, with players matched with opponents of the same rating. This was to enable players to take advantage of the new LTA ratings system where a player's rating could be advanced after just four wins.

Mrs Bush had hoped this would encourage more players, but it has not proved to be the case.

This year's prizes were awarded in age group categories according to the number of matches won.
