A total of 27 Hot Shots took to the courts of Denmark Country Club, showing off their skills in the annual WFI round-robin tournament last Sunday.

Competing in teams of three across two grades, the youth were able to use the skills they have been learning all year in competition.

Aged eight to 13, the future tennis stars made their own teams to compete in a round-robin format throughout the day, with each match consisting of three games.
