Dolton teenager serves up Navy victory
Just two weeks after completing basic training, Sunny Parker of Dolton is an Inter-Services Tennis Champion.
Playing at number two, the 19 year old represented the Royal Navy Women’s Tennis Team at Wimbledon and beat players from both the Army and RAF.
The following day she secured the championship for the Navy with a doubles win against the RAF alongside tennis partner Lieutenant Commander Bryony Southern.
During the two day championship Sunny was able to meet up with some of the Navy’s highest ranked personnel, including the current First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir George Zambellas.
Sunny is currently competing in a ten-day tennis tour of New England, USA, with members of both the Men’s and Women’s Navy teams.
