TWO East­cote young­sters took a few point­ers from for­mer Bri­tish num­ber one Tim Hen­man af­ter com­pet­ing at the HSBC Road to Wim­ble­don event ear­lier this month.

Kyle Stocker and Martina Pal­a­dini were in ac­tion on the world-fa­mous lawns of SW19 as they took part in the com­pe­ti­tion seen as a prov­ing ground for future stars of the game.

Around 10,000 boys and girls bat­tled to get to this stage and only 32 lucky hot­shots were able to pick up a racket at the home of ten­nis and en­joy the coach­ing clinic with Hen­man.

Stocker is hope­ful of fol­low­ing in Hen­man’s foot­steps and is look­ing for spon­sor­ship to fur­ther his fledg­ling ca­reer. Con­tact dad Alan via email on alan­stocker7@hot­ for more de­tails.
