NLTA spoke to county player Ruby Syer about her life in tennis. This is what she said:

“I’ve been playing tennis since the age of 5, and I’m now 12. I am thoroughly enjoying it so far and hoping to turn professional in the future.

As I have been playing tennis for so long I have attended many tournaments.  I currently have 50 medals and 10 trophies. I have represented my county of Norfolk on many occasions which makes me proud.

I have training squads at Easton Tennis Centre and one to one sessions with my coach at Acle Tennis Club. My weekly regime is squads Mon and Tues night, Wed and Sat at Acle and strength and conditioning on Thursday.

This year I had the opportunity to go and play on the famous grass courts at Wimbledon. I am very proud of this achievement as 9,000 children entered “Road to Wimbledon 2019” tournament and I made it to the last 24. Unfortunately I lost my round 1 match 10-2 in the third set tie break.  It has been the most amazing experience!”
