Junior Tennis Spotlight: Junior Interclub – July 2019

Junior Interclub season is heating up! The Aspen Hill Club’s team is off to a fabulous start, compiling an undefeated record of 4-0 to start the season. Our team is competing against juniors from tennis clubs across the area in the Montgomery County Junior Tennis League, and the kids are having a blast!

The season started out with a tough portion of the schedule, having Aspen Hill hosting 2017 champion Flower Valley followed by our next door neighbor, Argyle Country Club. The Aspen Hill Juniors, lead by brothers Mathew and Nathan Tan, defeated Flower Valley in a tough team match by a score of 11-6. The Tan brothers accounted for four of those points themselves by competing in the Boys 12 and 14 and under matches in both singles and doubles!  The Aspen Hill Juniors followed it up two days later by taking another close victory over Argyle by a score of 11-7, and also Norbeck Country Club over the next two weeks.

Another highlight of the first half of the season has been the Girls 12 and under. Aspen Hill is undefeated thanks to stellar play from Emma Ikeda and Wangu Njuguna. Both girls are undefeated in their match play. Way to go, ladies!

Last year’s season ended with a loss by one match to Palisades Club which handed them the league championship. Our kids have this match on July 9th circled on the calendar and are working hard in summer camp to get ready!

The Aspen Hill team is made up of Club members and juniors that are continuing to work on their match play in summer camp. The league is a great way to get our juniors exposed to competitive match play in a FUN team setting. The focus is on learning, having fun, and continuing to get better with every match.
