MORE than 100 of WA’s best ju­nior ten­nis play­ers are tak­ing to the courts in South Perth this week for a ma­jor tour­na­ment.

The South Perth Lawn Ten­nis Club’s Ju­nior Open Tour­na­ment started yes­ter­day and will fin­ish to­mor­row with a num­ber of medals on of­fer.

Tour­na­ment di­rec­tor Lor­raine Chyne said the ti­tles in­cluded un­der 10, 12, 14 and 16 for boys and girls in sin­gles and dou­bles.

“It’s a Ten­nis Aus­tralia and Ten­nis West-en­dorsed tour­na­ment so the play­ers can win points from com­pet­ing,” she said.

Vic­to­ria Park res­i­dent Liam Paull (13) said he took part in the tour­na­ment last year and came sec­ond in the un­der 14 sin­gles sec­tion.

“It was a lot of fun and it was good to do some­thing dur­ing the hol­i­days – the com­pe­ti­tion was fierce though,” he said.

Como res­i­dent Au­drey McGrail (12) said she also com­peted in the tour­na­ment for the first time in 2016.

“It was re­ally fun and I got to see all my friends from school,” she said.

“I did quite well in the tour­na­ment too. I think I fin­ished third or fourth,” she said.
