He became one of the youngest players to take to the legendary grass courts, playing on Court 7. Over 3 days and 3 matches, Felix generated two wins and one loss, including beating the current world number 1 in the under 18’s category!
Following Wimbledon, Felix went on to represent Great Britain at the European Championship in Switzerland. A busy and exciting July!
Felix trains daily at David Lloyd, Coventry, under the guidance of Leading Performance Tennis Coach, Gary Naughton.
Gary told us, “There’s a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes; intensive tennis technique work, plus daily strength & conditioning sessions and regular sports psychology mentoring. His work ethic is super.”
Attending Wimbledon to support, Matt Jolley, Managing Director at Hampton Group, outlined the motivation for sponsoring Felix:
“Sport plays a huge role in improving lives and bringing communities together. The hard work, dedication and determination shown by Felix, his family and coach, echoes our own company values. I hope our close relationship with Felix encourages further success and more recognition for this elite young sportsman. Congratulations Felix on your fantastic achievements! Our team are behind you and we look forward to celebrating more success with you in the future.”
Felix regularly competes in both national and international tournaments and is under the LTA National Age Group Programme. Our sponsorship helps to fund international travel and accommodation.
Whether you’re a tennis fan or simply appreciative of hard work and determination, Felix really is one to watch.
