YOUNG players from Tarka Tennis Centre have qualified for the National County Cup finals in Bolton this weekend.

Lucy Gill and Mathew Morrish were part of the Devon u12 boys and girls teams that played in the qualifying event in Bristol with players from Wiltshire, Cornwall, Avon, Channel Islands and Somerset.

Having both teams qualify is a great achievement, said Chris Gill from Tarka.

"It was a great effort from all the players and we came through some close matches."

Devon will now play the other qualifying counties from around the country at the finals in Bolton.

"The players have done well to get there. The competition will be tough, but we will go and do our best and enjoy the experience," said Chris.
