Squad starts again this Saturday 13th October with the U16 and U18’s at 07h45 and the U12 and U14’s at 10h00. We start off this term with Clive taking this week followed by the other Pro’s in the weeks to come.
I do hope everyone enjoyed the holidays (those of you who were on holiday!) and that you enjoyed playing the various tournaments that were available. Congratulations to Aidan Carrazedo for winning the Boys Under 18 singles and Richard Thongoana for winning the Boys Under 14 singles at the Junior National Championships in Bloemfontein. That is a tremendous achievement for both players who both seem to go from strength to strength. The other Gauteng Central players to have done well in the doubles are Charl Morgan (Under 12 Boys runner up), Bertus Kruger and Hugh Morgan in places 3/4 in Boys Under 14 Doubles and Caitlin Herb and Imaan Hassim (did not play together) in the Under 16 Girls Doubles. Well done to you all.
By now you will all know that the William sisters will be playing in the Arena at Ellis Park on Sunday 4th November at 2.00 p.m. I was asked to select 8 girls from our Under 16 squad to be ‘ball-girls’ for the event so there will be some Gauteng squad participation!! I know they are all very excited to be part of the tour and I know they will enjoy meeting and being on court with 2 great players.
I look forward to ‘hearing you news and results” this Saturday.
