Tennis Tens: loved by budding grand slam champs

The first Cayman National Tennis Tens event was held in the district of North side last week.  

Coach Alec Sandys from Cayman Tennis Academy hosted the event. 

In the standings after all the different competitions and drills, Condre Amerally finished on top with Xavier Wilson coming in a close second.  

Richard Harrison of the Tennis Federation of the Cayman Islands said, “With Cayman National’s continued support we have been able, through excellent coaches on island, to expand this initiative to all the districts of Grand Cayman for the first time this year. Special thanks to Alec for hosting it.” 

Rob Seward is the head coach at the Cayman Islands Tennis Club in South Sound.

“In the few years the Tennis Tens has been going more kids have got involved which I think is fantastic,” Seward said. “Tournaments have got more competitive and that is great for the development of the sport. 

“Also the fact that players like Juan Martin del Potro and Jerzy Janowicz got to the Wimbledon semis shows that the established players cannot be complacent. Maybe it could be a Caymanian kid too playing at Wimbledon. ” 

The next Cayman National Tennis Tens event is on 14 September at Bodden Town Primary School.
