HILLING­DON en­joyed a suc­cess­ful week­end at Europe’s largest an­nual youth sports event as the bor­ough’s ju­nior ten­nis and male and fe­male hockey and ta­ble ten­nis teams eased through qual­i­fy­ing rounds at the Bal­four Beatty Lon­don Youth Games.

Each sport was played at Red­bridge Leisure Cen­tre apart from ju­nior ten­nis, which took place at Sut­ton Ten­nis academy.

They can now look for­ward to com­pet­ing at the fi­nals at Crys­tal Palace this Satur­day and Sun­day against the cream of the cap­i­tal’s sport­ing tal­ent.

Hockey team man­ager Andy Lazare­vic was de­lighted with both the male and fe­male per­for­mances. He said: “It’s just fan­tas­tic. “The girls have just got bet­ter and bet­ter each year but this is by far the best. We’ve re­ally pulled to­gether.”
