Havering youngsters served up some brilliant tennis to qualify for the London Youth Games finals next month.

The squad beat Bromley, Haringey, Enfield and Tower Hamlets in their qualifying group to the delight of manager Peter Bruce.

He said: “The ones playing this year have more or less been playing together for three years and have all grown up a little, older, stronger and wiser, so they’re becoming a really strong team.”

Havering’s trampolining squad landed a bronze medal at their finals at Harrow on Sunday, with Adam Dobbins (sixth), William Smith (seventh), Kate Walker (21st) and Mack Mcauley (22nd) jumping for joy.

The angling team finished fourth overall at Tylers Common Fishery, with Jimmy Gilbert fifth in the senior standings as James Pratten (11th) celebrated his 14th birthday and Luis Jensen took fifth in the junior competition.

Havering’s boys beat Redbridge (3-0) and Kingston (2-1) in the para football finals and finished 13th.

Basketball qualifiers take place at UEL Sportsdock this weekend.
