Tennis teen impresses at Nottingham tournament
Cranston Park Tennis Club’s Olly Beadle had a weekend to remember after scooping two medals at the Learning Disability Regional tournament in Nottingham.
The 17-year-old won singles gold and mens’ silver gold (Division One) in extremely humid conditions at the Nottingham Tennis Centre.
Beadle dropped only five games in the three mens’ singles matches and won his second match without dropping a single game.
He played doubles with a new partner, Ronan Cacace of Scotland, and although they won their first math without dropping a single game, they were just edged out on a tie-break 7-4 against a strong Welsh doubles pair in the next round.
This performance bodes well for the youngster, who is coached by Neil Walker at the tennis club in Upminster, as he now prepares for the Special Olympic National games being held in Sheffield in August where he represents the Eastern region.
