J Bug and sports scholar, Robbie Taylor, recently came second in the U12 category at the LTA Youth National Series and went through to the finals – coming fifth in the UK.
He has been playing for eight years – since he was three years old.
“I feel proud of myself but mainly I just do it to have fun,” says Robbie. “I want to become a professional tennis player, and my next aim is to win a nationals tournament.
“At Trinity, I also get to play lots of other sports as well as Tennis, which I really enjoy. Learning about Sport Psychology helps me a lot, too, as it helps me have the right mindset in games,” he adds.
He says his advice is: “Keep trying and never give up, even if you lose an easy match.”
Well done, Robbie!
“Robbie is an outstanding Tennis player and I am not surprised at the levels he is reaching. However, what I am most impressed with is Robbie’s attitude towards sport. He is hard working, humble and a good but fair competitor. I look forward to seeing Robbie represent the school in the upcoming weeks!”
