• 1 MINUTE READ

Over 600 venues entered the competition which began in April of this year, with 8,000 players competing through the venue and county stages for the right to earn their place at the National Finals at Wimbledon.

Close to 100 14U junior players descended on SW19 last week (8-14 August) as the National Finals of the Road to Wimbledon took place at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

The Road to Wimbledon is the biggest junior tournament in British tennis and gives all 14U players the opportunity to progress through to compete on the world-famous grass courts at Wimbledon. This year was the 20th staging of the  tournament set up by the late Paul Hutchins with the ambition to open up grass court tennis and offer a unique experience to junior players.

We have had a fantastic week of tennis, with the boys and girls given the incredible opportunity to play on the amazing courts at Wimbledon.

Over 600 venues entered the competition which began in April of this year, with 8,000 players competing through the venue and county stages for the right to earn their place at the National Finals at Wimbledon.

The top 48 boys and 48 girls competed across Singles and Doubles with a list of all the winners and runners-up available to view  here.

Throughout the week, players were treated to Q&A’s by current ATP player Jeremy Chardy and former Fed and Davis Cup Coach Colin Beecher.

Players who just missed out on the finals were invited to a 90 minute coaching clinic on the final Saturday led by Tim Henman and AELTC Head Coach Dan Bloxham.

LTA Competitions Manager, Rory McCutcheon, said: “We have had a fantastic week of tennis, with the boys and girls given the incredible opportunity to play on the amazing courts at Wimbledon. I would like to congratulate all the players for making it to the National Finals and I hope they enjoyed the experience.

“I would also like to thank all the venues and players for entering this year’s Road to Wimbledon and for their continued support of the competition.”
