At Etone College we are always proud to share the successes of our pupils. Over the half term we were delighted to hear of the triumph Josh R had in tennis. After playing in national tournaments across the country most recently he has won the 18’s and under putting him amongst the best players in the country. In fact in his age group he is closing in on the top 100 players in his age group across Great Britain, very impressive indeed with thoughts turning to a long term career in tennis and tennis coaching.
Conversations have already been with had with the LTA for Josh to be on the LTA Coaching Pathway. Only the best juniors are asked to be part of this coaching pathway. With an invite already in the mail to discuss a career in coaching and how he can be fast tracked, this is news that will surely make Mrs Barlow and the careers team happy. During the day he will have the opportunity to watch the International Tennis Tournament in Nottingham and meet some of the players and coaches.
He has spent the past year coaching younger players and really enjoying it which shows a full range of our Employability Skills and Etone Values. He has also been asked to be vice captain of the Leicestershire Boys Under 11s team in the County Championships at the end of June, which is really looking forward to working to. Again, a fantastic achievement to be asked at his age to look after the team.
As always a big well done to Josh and to all our pupils in their extra curricular events!
