Tennis: Bede’s Alumni to Appear at Wimbledon

Julian Cash

Former Bede's students Julian Cash and Jarryd Bant are having a great week in the Tennis world.

Julian beat World Junior Number 8 at Roehampton ITF and will be in the main draw of Junior Wimbledon next week.  Jarryd has meanwhile been asked by World Number 7 Jelana Jankovic to travel as her full time hitter.

Following Wimbledon, Jarryd will head straight to the States in the lead up events to the US Open.

Director of Tennis at Bede's, Julie Salmon, herself former British No. 1 an ex-Wimbledon player, said of the boys' achievements, 'Julian has a great chance to impress next week with a serve recorded at 129 mph he is capable of causing more upsets before heading to America for a tennis scholarship to Missisippi University."

She continued, "Jarryd has also recently hit with Bernard Tomic during the Aegon International but this exciting opportunity to travel with Jelana and be around the top professionals will be a great learning curve and without doubt, incredibly rewarding."
