The County Cup Race will recognise a County’s performance in all 7 of the County Cup Events. Points will be allocated after each event, starting with the 18U Event in March and will conclude with the Winter Event in November. The County with the most points across all Events will be recognised as the overall County Cup Race Champion for that year.

The Herts Tennis Box Challenge

The “Herts Tennis Box Challenge” was set up to provide orange and green ball players with home-based competition while Covid-19 guidelines restricted travel.

Parents and players welcomed the opportunity for local competition and we saw lots of Herts players involved.  For Summer 2021 the competition has been opened up to also include the 11 & under age groups.

The Herts Tennis Box Challenge is a valuable addition to our players weekly training programmes and gives them the opportunity to put into practice what they are learning in their tennis lessons while developing match skills and most importantly enjoying their tennis!

Congratulations to Michael, Leo, William and Matthew for topping their groups in round 1 of the “Herts Tennis Box Challenges”.
