The Bermuda Lawn Tennis Association (BLTA) announced the three-member team that will represent Bermuda in the World Junior Tennis Pre-Qualifying Tournament for the Caribbean and North/Central American region. The team will be led by coach Terry Smith and comprises Tristian Pettie, Jaden Jones and Tobiah Goodchild.
The World Junior Tennis tournament is an international team competition equivalent to the Davis Cup for players in the 14 and Under category. It is scheduled to be held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, from March 6th – 11th.
Coach Terry Smith expressed confidence in the team's ability to make a strong showing at the tournament and hopes the boys' performances will serve as a benchmark for future progress.
Smith said, "We are overjoyed to see another group of talented young players represent Bermuda, and we remain committed to providing opportunities for international game play," said Michael Wolfe, the President of the BLTA. "With our Davis Cup team currently on a two-day winning streak in Guatemala, we cannot wait to see what our Under-14’s can accomplish."
The BLTA would like to thank the players, coaches, and parents for their dedication and support. We wish the teams the best of luck in the upcoming tournament and we are confident that they will do Bermuda proud.
The BLTA is actively seeking sponsorship to support our players in future events. We welcome any interested parties to get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship opportunities.
