WELWYN Garden City junior tennis player Indianna Spink was put through her paces after taking part in the Lawn Tennis Association’s (LTA) National Talent ID Day held at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton, London.

The 10-year-old was amongst 55 youngsters from across the country invited to the session.

Spink, who trains at Gosling High Performance Centre, showed off her skills in front of the LTA Talent ID team.

The My Tennis School pupil said: “I enjoyed my time and getting to do all the different tennis drills and having the time to practice even more.

“Doing the fitness and the different drills was challenging, but I thought it was really good.”

LTA head of talent management, Andrew Lewandowski, added: “Indianna has performed really well and shown lots of ability across a number of different tasks designed to test athletic ability, coordination, speed and agility, as well as a real natural talent and love for the sport.

“It was fantastic to see so many enthusiastic and talented players give it their all.

“The LTA is committed to developing and supporting talent, and we now have the systems in place to give players like Indianna the best possible chance of reaching their potential so I look forward to seeing him progress.”
