Bright future for tennis siblings

Posted on by in Sports

In the recently completed Champions of Champions tournament held in Grafton, Lower Clarence Tennis Association’s Sammy Hayman (Yamba) won the 14 girls event in stunning form, winning every match 6-2 or better, blitzing the best girls from Tweed to Forster.

Her coach Alan Jurd said Sammy is applying herself well at training and is starting to see the enormous future she has in the game.

“She is already helping me coach the little ones and they are starting to look up to her as a role model”, he said.

“Sammy is a natural player and just loves competing. She is also a natural coach with the kids as well.”

“It is going to be interesting to watch her development over the next couple of years as she commits to greater training, both as a player and a coach. We are all very proud of her”.

In a family affair her brother Nathan Hayman won the 2019 pointscore award in the 12 boys singles. Nathan (a leftie in the Nadal tradition) is also playing at a high representative level.
