Warwickshire retain U18s County Cup

Jake Hersey was a member of a 12-man team who managed to retain the U18 County Cup for Warwickshire over the weekend.

It was an excellent competition with Warwickshire having to beat the three other division one counties - Yorkshire, Sussex and Hertfordshire playing a format of six singles three doubles rubbers against each county.

Jake had a successful weekend personally in winning all his three singles and three doubles matches, remembering he is 14 years old in playing in an U18 competition. Hopefully Jake can carry his form into next week as he is off to an ITF tournament in Kramfors, Sweden.

He is grateful to Babolat, Tennis First and SportsAid for their support.
