Mariam wdon2Here at Dukes Meadows it’s been a very busy summer! Our academy players were busy competing all over the world. One of our young academy prospects Mariam Bolkvadze competed in her first junior grand slam and reached the 3rd Round in singles but did herself and the club proud by reaching the final in the girl’s doubles. She was invited to attend the Champions Ball where she met the world number 2 in men’s tennis Andy Murray and the current world number one in Women’s tennis Serena Williams. She is currently training in Georgia, her country of birth where she is preparing for future tournaments.

Another great success story here at Dukes is our Men’s First team achieving regional status in the Aegon tennis league. Headed by our Tennis Director James Lenton, our men’s team managed to top the division comfortably and then won the playoff match with ease. A great effort by our boys!

Our annual Dukes Meadows tournament was a great success and yet again an enjoyable week of great tennis. Winners from the club included Ranah Stoiber, Oliver Bonding, Michael Morphy and Katie Dando.
