Road to Wimbledon

Giffnock tennis club’s Harriet Beattie had a chance to emulate her idols when she competed on Wimbledon’s grass courts at the HSBC U14 championships.

The 14-year-old Eastwood high pupil qualified from her group beating Devon’s highly rated Abigail Skelley. In the knockout competition, she went down valiantly against the number two seed and eventual semi-finalist Holly Hutchison from Buckinghamshire.
