Five young Tennis enthusiasts who train at the LED Tennis Centre in Exmouth took part in the first phase of the Road to Wimbledon Challenge last weekend.

The youngsters were in action on the courts in Phear Park and the weather was kind in terms of sunshine, though the players had to extremely strong winds which sometime saw balls flying off in the wrong direction!

Eleven-year-old Tommy Poli defeated 14-year-old Ben Hammond in the final and he now moves into the county finals, the next step of the competition, being held in July.
