Rising Sodbury tennis star Joshua Sillick has made it through to an event in Birmingham after an impressive display in a county competition.
Joshua fought off strong competition in the Oxstalls U10 Winter County Tournament to qualify for the Midlands Regional G3 event at Billesley Tennis Centre in Birmingham.
After a nail biting championship tie-break, Sillick successfully beat the number one seed in the first round 4-1, 5-4, 10-7. He qualified for the final after beating another competent player in the next round and after a further championship tiebreak he took the title 4-2, 3-4, 10-7.
 Sodbury Tennis Club has recently celebrated the official opening of the widening and general refurbishment of its ‘mini’ tennis court. The improvements will provide younger players with the space and equipment they need to further progression and tennis skills, allowing more children to access the court at any one time.
