The Highland Spring Junior Open Tennis Tournament 2023 came to a close with Nadhira Durham taking the 18 & Under Singles title as she prepares for the Billie Jean King Cup in Panama next week. Asia-Leigh Hollis was runner-up.
13-year-old Jaden Jones is making himself known in the older Boys 16 & Under Singles category, taking that title over Kyan Hands after earlier winning the 18 & Under Doubles final with partner Tobiah Goodchild. Jones also battled his doubles partner in the Boys 14 & Under Singles. With that match looking like it was going to be a three-setter, Goodchild was able to secure the win in two sets.
Hasan Khan comfortably took the Boys 14 & Under Singles title over Michael Mohipp.
Theodore Tolaram won the Boys 10 & Under title over Sebastian Gerber.
10-year-old Chloe McBrearty took the Girls 10 and Under crown over Arianna Parra and also won the Girls 12 & Under title in a sensational three-set match with Isabella Neururer. Neururer had earlier teamed up with Lee Terceira to win the Girls 12 & Under Doubles over Arianna Parra and Ella Metschnabel.
The Girl's 10 and 12-year-old categories are replete with talented players. They demonstrate good technique and are aggressive - smacking the ball hard and playing lengthy rallies. The Bermuda Lawn Tennis Association (BLTA) which sanctions this event, held at the Pomander Gate Tennis & Pickleball Club, will certainly be encouraged by these “next generation” players. In addition to those already mentioned, Samantha Morgan, Dylan Outerbridge, and Ayra Khan are names to watch out for.
