Tennis Talk – May 2019

As spring rolls around, the province’s elite junior tennis players are rounding into form for Tennis BC’s Provincial Selection Series. Many of those players train tirelessly right here on our courts – and the results of their efforts are showing.

Our High Performance Director, Sasha Boskovic, was proud to have one of his UBC Tennis Centre athletes in the finals of every draw at the U16 Outdoor Selection Tournament #1!

Aidan Tseng took home the boys doubles title, Henry Ren finished second in the boys singles, and Keita Duclos came third in boys singles.

Vanessa Kahkesh had a stellar weekend as runner-up in both the girls singles and doubles – falling to the top seed in each.

Next up for our top talent is the U18 Outdoor Selection Tournament #2, which will see a bevy of UBC Tennis Centre athletes competing against the best of the best on May 11-14 in Burnaby.

Best of luck to all UBC Tennis Centre athletes as they prepare for an amazing outdoor tournament season!
