BETA Players at County Cup
Tournaments and Aegon team tennis took a break this past weekend as the group stages for the U14 County Cup took place as well as the Lionel Cox Trophy for U9’s through to U12’s. Three BETA players were competing for their respective counties in the U14 age group. Joel Pierleoni representing Hertfordshire, travelled up to Wrexham, Sophia Mezzone was in Malvern representing Warwickshire and Nicholas Blagg was down in Taunton representing Buckinghamshire. Sophia and Nicholas helped their teams to a 2nd place finish in their groups respectively, while Joel’s team went through to the finals in a couple weeks time after winning their group on a very rain affected weekend in North Wales. Joel will travel up to Nottingham in a few weeks time to take part in the finals, with 11 other counties from around the country.
The Lionel Cox Trophy is an annual teams event hosted at Queenswood Tennis Centre in Brookmans Park. BETA was represented by Jeevan Samra who was playing for Bedfordshire against; Essex, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire. It was tough work for Jeevan and his Beds team as they came up against some very tough opponents. None the less a good experience competing against good players with plenty of lessons to be learned.
Our team will return to tournament action this week as well as a busy weekend of Aegon team tennis matches, with the men, the women, the U18 girls and the U16 U14 & U12 boys all competing. Good luck to all!
