* Junior Real Tennis World Championships 2022
Aug 22, 2022 - Aug 24, 2022 Seacourt Paul Weaver
Please see results below
The bi-annual running of the World Junior Real Tennis Championships took place at Seacourt over 3 days on the 22nd - 24th August 2022. Once again this prestigious event was sponsored by The Dedanists Society.
The top 16 juniors in the world (U19) played in the tournament by invitation which included two players from Hobart, Tasmania. The tennis was exceptional from day one and just got better and better.
The standard of play in the first semi-final between Max Trueman (Seacourt) and Ollie Pridmore (Hobart) was really quite extraordinary with Max winning a very close match. In the other semi-final, Bertie Vallat (Queens Club) defeated 15-year-old Henry Henman (Radley).
The final was once again high-quality tennis as you would expect from two players with 13 handicaps, with Max Trueman taking the title after coming back from 5-1 down in the second set against Bertie Vallat (Queen’s).
Max Trueman was crowned as Junior World Champion and all who watched agreed that many of these young players have the ability to play at the very highest level in years to come. After a quick (non- alcoholic) celebration in the Seacourt bar, many of the competitors went down to the beach and jumped in the sea in their tennis whites!
