Charisma Nuqui from Thurrock Lawn Tennis club passed her Nationals at Roehampton with ease. This has been well earned from the hard work she has put in. Her Father Chris Nuqui is very proud of her achievement but states that ”There is a lot of work still to be done”. Thurrock Lawn Tennis are extremely delighted at this news and will support Charisma and her family in every way they can.
Also happening at Thurrock was the Mini tennis competitions organised by Terry Morgan Thurrock LTC Captain. There were some very good matches with the Mini Red taking place on Monday 18th April with Lenny Kitoko taking the spoils (picture), after some fine battling from the runner-up Cian King-Liffen, Lenny eventually won 10-7 with some good rallies between both players. Well done to both players for an extremely good final enjoyed by all.
Richard Tucker came Third after a play-off with Sean Fashesin-Souza winning by 10-8 again some very good rallies and everybody who watched really were pleased with the standard of play.
