A teenage tennis player who trains at Westway Sports & Fitness has been crowned the boys’ junior deaf tennis world champion.
Esah Hayat, 13, triumphed at the World Deaf Tennis Championships in Nottingham on Saturday 25 July. The championships brought together some of the world's best deaf tennis players in an international competition for the very first time.
In April this year, four budding athletes who train with Westway Sport & Fitness were awarded scholarships to help them reach their sporting potential. They shared £5,000 that Westway Trust has given for scholarships in memory of one of our trustees, Tim Davis, who died last year. The awards reflect Westway Trust’s role in providing first rate sports facilities and opportunities.
The country’s climbers took to the wall on 11 and 12 July to battle it out for the title of Britain’s best boulderer at the national Bouldering Championship 2015 at Cliffhanger - Sheffield’s annual outdoor sports festival.
This year the tournament took place in June, slightly later than usual, but a huge 42 out of a possible 48 players still turned out to compete in the three graded levels: Advanced Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced.
Spectators were also treated to a brilliant exhibition match between Richie Fallows and Reuben Phillips, the World No. 79 and 139 respectively. As always there was some fantastic action on hand followed by the all important trophy presentation!
