So, he is taking part in a special junior international tournament, called Road to Wimbledon, that will give him the opportunity to follow in his heroes’ footsteps and compete for a chance to play at the iconic tennis venue. 

Oliver is ranked 14th in the UK for U14 tennis and competes in tournaments all around the UK.  Most recently, he played a competition in Cheadle Kingsway and came 2nd in U16s,  playing against older competitors.

He is committed to his training, and is at the courts every day at 6.15am plus evenings with tournaments at the weekend. Oliver started playing age 6 or 7; he did start with football but soon switched to tennis!

Oliver said:

“The dream is to become a professional tennis player.  All the work towards competitions helps to accumulate ATP points, in order to move up the British rankings.”

Good luck in making your way to Wimbledon Oliver!
