U15s Boys Are Surrey Champions Winter 2017/18!

Ham & Petersham's team of James Kober & Charles Kober played throughout the winter in cold, rainy and even sleety conditions to win their Surrey group  to move onto the knockout stages.
In the quarter finals they went to Westside in Wimbledon and won and then sent Woking LTC packing in the semi finals.
In the final in March, they met their nemesis, Wilton LTC and after splitting the singles, Jamie & Charlie pulled out a massive win in the doubles winning in a third set tie-break after being on court more than four and a half hours to be crowned Surrey Champions!
Quite an achievement boys...WELL DONE!!!

* Green Ball Challenge:
2 of our green ball players, Freddie Jonsson & Jago Marton went to a team event at the Hawker Centre over Easter 2018 and beat all comers including Wilton & Hawker to win the event...well done boys!


We are also very happy to have strong ties with the local school systems. 
James Kober, our "head of performance training", runs after school programmes at The Russell School, The Vineyard, The German School and Grey Court School which gives us greater feeder opportunities to add to our own junior programmes and to increase our membership base while also attracting some of the junior players’ parents to the club!
