Looking forward to representing Great Britain U14s against France

Having had a few weeks settling into his new full time routine of education, tennis and fitness at Edgbaston Priory High Performance Centre, this week sees the start of a busy period for 13-year-old tennis player Jake Hersey.

It starts with a week away at the National Tennis Centre with three of the days at a national training camp, followed immediately by playing for Great Britain U14s in a match against France U14s, where Jake is looking forward to the challenge in not having played any of the French team before.

It is then on to a Tennis Europe Tournament in the UK, where Jake has earned a starting spot as second seed as a minimum so hopes to do well. Looking forward from there, at the end of November Jake has a week of national training at La Manga followed by a Tennis Europe event in the Czech Republic. Thanks to Babolat for their support.
