What an amazingly talented and committed bunch of juniors we have at High Legh, and this is just the start, as we have so many up and coming young players showing promise.
I am so proud of how all our juniors have performed in the County Finals – they played with great team spirit, always encouraging each other, and they are getting better and better all the time. Go team High Legh. Also, many thanks to our kit supplier Babolat and the league organiser Mike Atherfold of Point-One Tennis”
