Following his recent ‘Excellence in Sport’ award Jake Hersey received a further two awards at the annual Warwickshire LTA dinner last Friday at the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham.

Jake received the ‘Junior Player of the Year’ in recognition of his achievements through 2014 which saw him maintain a top 10 ranking in Europe throughout the year, representing GB in multiple team and individual events, winning the Champions Cup tournament in Belgium and qualifying for the ‘Race to the European Masters’.

The second award was in recognition of being a member of the U18 Warwickshire team that won the County Cup for the first time in over 30 years.

Jake now has two weeks of tournaments in Malta. He is grateful to Babolat, Tennis First and SportsAid for their support.
