Academy players are celebrating a double doubles
success after capturing both of the pairs titles at an international tournament in

Kenya.

Teenage tennis players from the academy, based at the

University of

Bath,
won both the boys¹ doubles and the girls¹ doubles titles at the

Mombasa
International Junior Championship.

Seventeen-year-old Scott Clayton and 16-year-old

David Fox were unseeded for
the tournament but ran out comprehensive 6-1, 6-1 winners over Kenya¹s
Ismael Ruwa and Poland¹s Julian Turosienski, who were seeded four, in the
final.

Seventeen-year-old Alicia Barnett and 15-year-old Brigit Folland were also
unseeded for the women¹s doubles but saw off three seeds Nikita Dawda
(Kenya) and Britt Geukens (Belgium) in the quarter-finals before recording a
6-4, 6-4 over Kasandra Kozub (Poland) and Anastasiya Shestakova (

Ukraine) in
the final.

Barry Scollo, director of the

TeamBath

Tennis

Academy, said: I'm really
pleased for both pairs this will help their rankings for bigger events later
in the year and build their experience on the doubles court.

³Doubles is not always a high priority with junior tennis but vital for
learning certain skills that develop well rounded players, I hope they can
do the same at their next tournament in Nairobi.²

It is the latest success for TeamBath Tennis Academy players following
Andrew Willis¹ singles triumph in the recent Aegon British Tour on his home
courts at the University of Bath Sports Training Village.  Another Academy
player, Sam Murray, was runner-up in the women¹s competition.

The

TeamBath

Tennis

Academy is one of the LTA¹s four International High
Performance Centre¹s and is based at the University of Bath Sports Training
Village. It offers a complete range of tennis from mini tennis for kids,
recreational tennis through to performance tennis.
