Wimbledon Ball Boys - Selection Success!

The eight boys chosen to represent Glyn School as Ball Boys for the Wimbledon 2019 Championships attended the selection day on Saturday 12 January. Following three months’ of intense training at school, the boys were put through their paces at   The All England Lawn Tennis Club and were assessed in four areas: fitness, skills, court-work and game knowledge. The intense process required the boys to perform varying skills, such as rolling, feeding and collecting balls to near-perfection, whilst showing outstanding tennis knowledge and completing demanding fitness tasks.

All the boys worked extremely hard for the two and a half hour selection session and should be very proud of having the opportunity to attend the prestigious selection event. I am pleased to let you know that the following boys were selected on the day and have now entered the training programme for the 2019 Wimbledon Championships:

Reuben 10C

Thomas 10C

Adam 10B

Reuben 10SB

The boys will now continue to train and develop their skills to work towards attending the Wimbledon 2019 Championships as Ball Boys. The hard work continues!

All the boys who put themselves forward as Wimbledon Ball Boys are to be congratulated as the selection process is extremely demanding. We wish the four boys who have been selected the very best of luck; they have worked extremely hard to be part of such a prestigious sporting event!
