It has been a busy and successful few months for Joe. Over Easter, he competed in the Wolverhampton Open. In the semi-final, after an epic last set, he won 7-6, 6-7, 14-12. Following a short break, he went on to play in the final, losing in the 3rd set. A highlight for Joe was that Premiership football team, Wolverhampton Wanders and their Manager Nuno Espiritp Santo, were playing a few feet away when he was playing in the quarter finals.
Joe has been playing for the Stourbridge Men's A Team in the Team Tennis Regional Division and the South Staffordshire League. He has also been playing for the Bromsgrove Men's A Team and Mixed A Team in the Herefordshire & Worcestershire League – and he is still only 15.
Stourbridge Lawn Tennis & Squash Club have launched their new website this month and the front page video features Joe wearing a t-shirt with the Griffiths Marshall logo on.
On a short break from tennis, Joe has also managed to find the time (and energy) to go skiing where he was lucky enough to take part in off piste and avalanche training with his ski instructor.
We all wish Joe well for the rest of the year.
