Young tennis player Alex Targett has completed a successful summer season on the South Eastern circuit.

Targett, 11, played 11 ranking events in the U12s and finished the second highest ranked player in the South East U11s and a creditable 23rd in the British rankings.

He has been invited to the National Tennis Centre at Roehampton, the LTA headquarters, for a National Talent ID day. Alex plays and trains at the Eastbourne Indoor Tennis Centre under the stewardship of Matt Edwards and Ed Ellis. He also plays at ROMPA, Meads.

His objective over the next 12 months is to retain his status in the top 24 and play in the National Championships next August.
