It was game, set and match to two Skegness tennis stars when they competed in a regional tournament.

Skegness Grammar School students - and rising tennis stars - Henry Beesley (16) and his brother Dominic (18) have won under 16s and men’s singles events respectively in Sutton Coldfield and Cheltenham.

Henry, taking his GCSEs this summer, played in both regional competitions.

He won the event in Sutton Coldfield, beating Surrey’s Freddie Grant in the final 6-2, 7-6.

He then went on to win the Cheltenham event, overcoming Somerset’s James Edwards 6-0, 7-5 in the tournament final.

Dominic, taking A-levels at SGS, played in the men’s event at Cheltenham and won it, beating Noah Pring from Avon in the final 6-0, 6-1.

Henry and Dominic have received Odey scholarships, run through sponsor, the David Ross Education Trust, for sporting achievement.

Assistant headteacher at Skegness Grammar, Amanda Black said: “They’ve both done

incredibly well against some of the UK’s leading tennis players in their age group.

“We’re proud of their achievements and also pleased that, through the Odey Scholarship scheme and our sponsor, we have been able to help a little financially.”
