Alex Gillespie on the Road to Wimbledon(June 10, 2009)
Rainford junior Alex Gillespie won the recent HSBC Road to Wimbledon competition at Rainford High School and will now play in the county finals of the event.
Each year clubs and schools across the country are invited to run a local competition with the winners progressing to the county finals. The winners of the county finals then compete in the national finals on the grass courts at the All England Club in August.
Alex will now compete in the Lancashire finals against other local winners at South Ribble Tennis & Fitness Centre on 4th and 5th July.
