The Leys in Cambridge has two gifted young tennis players who have joined the U16 national rankings

Two Year 11 pupils at The Leys, Cambridge have joined the U16 Top 100 Tennis Players rankings. Marton H and Jack S are placed 30th and 93rd respectively. Both aspire to head on to US universities in order to turn pro.

To place in the U16 Top 100 Tennis Players both Marton and Jack played around 200 games, travelling around the country most weekends, gathering points for each win to determine their overall ranking. Playing against both U16 and U18 players, the school says the boys were pushed to their limits and are very proud of what they have managed to achieve.

Jack says: “Playing games each weekend is a real joy and a challenge, I am excited to do it all again this year. When I am on the court there is no one else to blame for my shortcomings. It is just me and my opponent, and I love that about the game”,

Marton says: “I have been playing Tennis from a young age and it has taught me so much about time management and discipline”.
