BNP Paribas RCS Rising Star Tennis Tournament

Our Rising Star tennis players, Moroesi Tuaone, Ilana Buck, Nicole Ledlie and Katie Franck took part in the national stage of the Rising Star Tennis Tournament held at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in Soweto. The girls enjoyed three days of high level tennis and played extremely well to finish fifth overall. The tournament ended with a match between Kevin Anderson and Lloyd Harris which was inspiring for all the young tennis players. Well done to our girls who were stars on and off the court.

Junior tennis league

Unfortunately, the lightning and stormy weather has played havoc with the junior matches. However, the girls have been very active during practice and there has been some keen competition in the ladder challenges. One league match has been played.
