Rainford Tennis player Maisie Lavelle has won the 8 & Under Girls Singles at the 2011 North of England Tennis Championships.

The seven year old won the tournament, which takes place every year, on the indoor courts at South Ribble Tennis & Fitness Centre, near Preston.

Maisie, who is coached by Dave Hillier, won all eight of her matches including a 10-8 win over Jhonayah Fletchman in the final.

“Maisie played very well throughout the tournament and deserved to take home another trophy” said Hillier after the tournament.

“The priority now for Maisie is to keep improving and to keep winning as she gets older.”
