Burnley Tennis Club’s Lucas Von Heuser Mason has won his first junior LTA tournament in Ilkley.

The youngster competed in the under 8s mini red tournament and performed exceptionally to win every match.

Coach Dave Woolstencroft said: “It’s a fantastic achievement which is well deserved after he put in plenty of hard work on the court over the last few months both with myself and his parents.”

Burnley Tennis Club is currently looking for new and experienced junior and adult players to get involved in the club for the 2016 season.

Burnley will have teams for both adults and juniors playing singles and doubles in the Aegon National Club League, East Lancs League and County Cups, while the club runs regular tournaments and competitions for complete beginners through to experienced players.

And, after securing Sportivate funding from Sport England, the Tennis Club of the Year, awarded at the Lancashire AEGON British Tennis awards night, is offering free tennis coaching to anybody aged between 11 and 25.
