Upminster teenager Olly Beadle impressed at the Special Olympic National Games in Sheffield.

Cranston Park Tennis Club’s Beadle bagged the gold medal in the men’s singles top division after sealing victories in all four of his matches.

His success included a win against the previous world number five in learning disability tennis, Shain Lewis of Wales, at the competition earlier this month.

Mum Jackie said: “It was a very tough few days in Sheffield with early starts at around 5 am, but Olly rose to the occasion with particularly close matches against the two Welsh players Shain Lewis and Joshua Kerr, the latter decided by a tie break which Olly won 7 - 2.”

Beadle is now the National men’s singles champion and Special Olympic National Champion.

While, the 17-year-old also won two gold medals in the mens singles and mixed doubles for Great Britain at the Special Olympics World games in Los Angeles.
