A YOUNG tennis hopeful from Oswestry got his hands on silverware recently at a competition in Wrexham.

Kobe Jones, of Oswestry Team Tennis, was celebrating after he won the 2020 North Wales Boys under-14s singles title held at Wrexham Tennis Centre.

He has been a member of the Oswestry club since the age of six, and has shown his development throughout the years with top performances at local competitions.

Kobe was a key member of the club’s team which gained promotion to Group 6N in the Shropshire Adult Doubles league competition last year.

Club spokesman, Clive Knight, was impressed with Kobe’s performances in the recent competition.

He said: “Kobe played really well in this indoor Junior County competition, and won the title without dropping a set, a fine achievement.

“Kobe though had to do it the hard way beating the number one and two seeds on the way to win the title. In the quarter finals he beat Marco Frulloni 5-3, 4-0.

“In the semi-final he beat Christian Hawkey the number one seed 4-1, 4-2.

“In the final he came up against number two seed William Harrington and again won convincingly 4-1, 4-2.”
