It was a clean sweep for 10is Academy’s men’s side as they got off to a winning start in the LTA Winter League. 

The men’s team recorded an 8-0 thrashing over Cottenham 1sts in their first home match of the 2021-22 season, helped by an impressive display from Rhys Baxter. 

The pair of Tom Shackleton and Sebastien Scaux earned 10is’ first point with a 6-4, 6-1 victory, followed by triumph for Rhys and Michael Ling. 

Both pairs completed the doubles sweep with a 6-2, 6-1 win for Tom and Seb and a 6-2, 6-2 victory for Rhys and Michael. 

“The team produced a solid performance, dropping only 16 games in four matches,” said Sebastien.
