SWINDON tennis-playing siblings Josh and Ella Bennett enjoyed a successful Christmas period with a series of strong results at regional tournaments.

Seven-year-old Josh triumphed at two LTA Regional Under-8 events, the highest standard of event in his age group.

Josh’s first victory came in Bristol just after Christmas and he continued his hot form into the new year with another success in Southampton last weekend.

Josh has now won nine LTA events and still has 15 months left in the Under-8 age group.

Meanwhile, older sister Ella, aged nine, finished third in the LTA Under-9 competition at Swindon Delta just before Christmas and followed that with a runners-up finish in the same Bristol event where Josh triumphed.

Both players currently train at Delta Tennis Centre in Swindon, while Ella is also the reigning Wiltshire county tennis champion in the Under-9 age group.
