Pevensey Bay’s Alex Targett has been selected as one of 30 Ball Kids at this year’s 2014 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

Alex will appear on court with the world’s best tennis players in London this November at The O2.

He was one of 30 youngsters picked from trialists at last weekend’s national trial held at St George’s Park.

Alex went through trials competing with more than 700 young hopefuls to earn his place. He was tested on agility, endurance, co-ordination, balance, speed, ball-skills, teamwork and leadership.

Thousands of spectators are expected at The O2 in November, as well as millions of television viewers around the world to watch the best players such as Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer battle for the title.
