Regional call-up for Zechariah

WINTERBOURNE Tennis Club's Zechariah Hamrouni has been honoured by being selected as an LTA Avon regional player. As a hard-working and skilful young player, the 13 year old's potential to develop into a future champion has been recognized by the Lawn Tennis Association.

Zechariah, one of 250 regional players across Britain, has been selected because of his achievements at national competitions. It means he will be eligible for a subsidised training programme, getting top coaching at regional player development centres.

Each centre has a full-time head coach, who is focused on working with players aged 10-14, and Zechariah will benefit from high-quality individual and squad coaching, maximum athletic development, playing alongside aspiring peers as well as playing national and international events. This is a fantastic opportunity for Zechariah that could prepare him for a place at a National Academy in the future.

LTA head of National Performance Pathway Ian Yates said: “This is a terrific achievement and something Zechariah should feel very proud about. We look forward to supporting him on his journey to becoming a champion both on and off the court."

We at WTC fully concur.
