BROMSGROVE Lawn Tennis Centre’s Imogen Sinclair was put through her paces when taking part in the Lawn Tennis Association’s (LTA) national Talent ID Finals at the Bolton Arena.
Imogen was amongst 80 youngsters from across the country invited to the session with all of the players showing off their skills in front of the LTA Talent ID team, who were aiming to spot future performance players, who even at such an early age were displaying the right attributes that could enable them to make a real impact on the game.
RGS Worcester pupil Imogen said: “I was really excited about coming to the Talent ID Finals. Getting to play against the best players in the country in my age group was brilliant. I was able to pick up a few useful tips from them to help me improve.”
The day was overseen by LTA Head of Talent Management Andrew Lewandowski who was impressed by what he saw.
“They have performed really well and shown lots of ability across a number of different tasks testing qualities including athletic ability, co-ordination, speed and agility and a real natural talent and love for the sport.
“It was fantastic to see so many enthusiastic and talented players give it their all. The LTA is committed to developing and supporting talent, and we now have the systems in place to give players like these the best possible chance of reaching their potential so I look forward to seeing them progress.”
