Congratulations to St Aloysius College’s Aidan McHugh for winning the boys’ singles title at the first week of the Nike Junior International Nottingham, a Grade 4 tournament on the International Tennis Federation’s junior circuit.

The 15-year-old pupil from Glasgow was in excellent form throughout the tournament at Nottingham Tennis Centre, only dropping one set on his way to the final against France’s Marceau Courtalon.

The Scottish teenager, who is supported through the Tennis Scotland national player development programme and coached by Toby Smith, was too strong for the French 16-year-old, winning the final 7-5, 6-4 to collect his third ITF junior title. Last year, Aidan won tournaments in Dubai and Liverpool.
