Year 7 student, Harry Swain, has recently returned from the South of France, having been selected once again to play Tennis for Great Britain. Harry began playing tennis at Nottingham Tennis Centre as a Toddler where he subsequently was selected to train in squads as part of the LTA’s 10U Performance Programme. Having met the criteria a year early to train at a regional player development centre (RPDC), he now continues to train at Nottingham’s RPDC as a listed player on the National Player Pathway as part of the LTA’s National Age Group Programme.
Age 10, Harry competed in and won his first National Singles Title. The following year came his first of several selections to represent GB, and at the age of 11 won a further 2 National titles. Harry has been ranked as high as number 1 in Britain and despite being injured for a significant part of last year, still managed to end the year as 11U British number 3.
Brookvale Groby Learning Campus are behind Harry and are working to enable him to combine his education and the significant amount of training involved in his tennis development. Since starting here in September, Harry has been out to Poland and France to play for GB, and having previously won a qualifying event, had his expenses paid to compete in a junior international tournament at Rafael Nadal’s Tennis Academy in Majorca.
WELL DONE HARRY!
