Teenager picks up a bronze medal in singles event and gold in doubles with Adam Brownsword

Upminster’s Olly Beadle had more reason to celebrate recently when he claimed more success at a national learning disability tennis tournament in Nottingham.

The 18-year-old Barking & Dagenham College student managed to pick up a bronze medal in the singles event, but finished with a gold in the men’s doubles top division.

Beadle partnered Kent’s Adam Brownsword and they won all of their matches to triumph overall, though it was far from straightforward.

The Cranston Park LTC member had to win a tie break in the final with one rally lasting 43 shots!

In the end, Beadle managed to claim the victory alongside Brownsword and come home happy after impressing in the singles top division.

After making it through to the semi-finals of the singles tournament, Beadle lost 6-4 to the top seed.

But he bounced back well to win the third/fourth-place play-off 6-4 and conclude a great weekend in Nottingham where he also got to meet the mayor of the city.
