A PROMISING Redditch tennis star has booked her place on the hallowed Wimbledon courts after serving up success in the regional finals of a major competition.
Oliwia Sztorc saw off the challenge of junior tennis players from across Herefordshire and Worcestershire in the regional finals of grassroots tournament Play Your Way to Wimbledon, Powered by Vodafone.
The 14-year-old prevailed in straight sets against Madeline Walsh in the final at Manor Park Tennis Club in Malvern which saw her drop just three games.
She will now be invited to immerse herself in the true Wimbledon experience, competing in whites and touring the historic grounds and museum before taking part in the national finals at the Aorangi Courts next month.
Former British number one Laura Robson said: “Playing at Wimbledon was a highlight of my career, so working alongside Vodafone to bring this competition to Herefordshire and Worcestershire and give winners the chance to compete at SW19 is amazing to see.”
Oliwia has been a member at Redditch Tennis Club since she first started playing the sport at the age of eight and is coached by Redditch’s head coach Tony Ravenscroft.
