Thirteen year old Ruairi Logan delivered a double blow at last weekend’s 2015 Tennis Foundation Wheelchair National & Development Series Final, claiming singles and doubles titles at Oxstalls Tennis Centre, Gloucester.
The Edinburgh based player, who has been playing wheelchair tennis for six years, blew his opposition away in the singles section as he claimed 3 wins in the round robin format without dropping a set and with a sensational record of 36-1 in games. Ruairi was keen to play down the gap between the players, highlighting ‘he found it a challenge to beat Ben Johnson Rolfe’ in his first match. The current Lothian Disability Sport Young Sports Person of the Year also defeated George Jeremiah and Nathaniel Lowe Cordingly on his way to securing the Junior Championship.
Ruairi, currently trains with Winning Wheels Wheelchair Tennis Club in addition to accessing coaching with mainstream players, was included in the GB team that participated earlier this year at the World Team Cup in Turkey. The weekend was complete when the young Scot claimed doubles victory with partner Ben Johnson Rolfe, defeating the English pairing of Nathaniel Lowe Cordingly and George Jeremiah.
