Nearly 50 youngsters from around Taranaki participated in the Stratford Junior Tennis Tournament on Sunday.

Tournament controller, Bruce Cleland, says the players were divided into grades based on ability rather than age, to ensure everyone was challenged on the day.

He says the players all showed their skill on the day and they are all to be commended for their dedication to the sport.
