BLT&SRC are very proud to be supporting our own Joel Pierlioni in the Junior Davis Cup. Follow progress here....

 

The junior Davis cup is the most important junior teams event in the world and the players competing are the best of their age in the world. The format is similar to a football World Cup, 4 groups of 4 with the top 2 going through to the quarter final knock out stages. Each tie is comprised of 3 matches; 2 singles and 1 doubles. 

 

The GB team is made up of Berkhamsted Tennis Club’s own Joel Pierleoni, Felix Gill from Birmingham and Jack Pinnington-Jones from Surrey. The boys have won their first 2 group matches and are through to the quarter finals which start Friday. On Tuesday they beat the highly fancied American team 2-1 and today guaranteed there progress through with another 2-1 win over Uzbekistan. Joel and Felix won the doubles rubber to clinch the win yesterday.
