THE annual Thornden Junior Tennis Open saw 90 children from the south compete for several trophies.

Sponsored by A & A Business Supplies, the LTA tournament attracted players from 11 different counties.

Organiser Paul Scullard said: “Hampshire, Dorset, Cornwall, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Middlesex, Sussex, Wiltshire, Kent, Somerset and Avon were all represented and it was well run by well-known local referee Chris Whiting.”

The 18 & U Boys trophy was won by Sam Charles, who beat fellow Hampshire player David Darrock in the final.

Other Hampshire winners included Zizheng Jin (14 & U Boys) and Magda Kornijczuk (10 & U mixed).
