Brentwood tennis ace hits the TV headlines

A Brentwood School tennis ace hit the headlines when a TV news crew visited him.

Levi Lowe-Lennon, 15, was filmed by Channel 4 News as part of a feature on up and coming tennis players.

Levi, who has played tennis since he was nine, said he wanted to take up the sport after watching Wimbledon, and now wants to be “the best player in the world”.

He said: “I believe if you put in the hard work and make sacrifices you can achieve anything in life. It makes me happy being on the court and when you win it is even better.”

His story appeared on Channel 4 News last week after his mum Dawn Lennon appealed for a sponsor to back her talented son. She explained how the cost of travel to tournaments and coaching was proving prohibitive.
