YOUNG Swindon tennis ace Ella Bennett won the South West Summer County Tour U10 girls’ event in her home town on Saturday.

Bennett was the only player from Wiltshire to qualify for the competition through the rankings, with the nine-year-old taking on opponents from Berkshire, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Herefordshire, Surrey and south Wales at Swindon Tennis Club.

A superb performance and never-give-up attitude in very windy conditions saw Bennett come back from trailing 4-2, 3-1 in the final to triumph. She took victory 10-9 in the tie-break after the match had ended 2-4, 4-3.

Bennett currently trains at Delta Tennis Centre in the town under the excellent coaching of Steve Yeardley.
