Mallory island’s youngest Davis Cup player

Trey Mallory will become the youngest player to represent Bermuda in the Davis Cup, when he represents the island in the Group III ties in Escazu, Costa Rica from May 28 to June 3.

The Bermuda team consists of No 1 seed Gavin Manders, David Thomas, Neal Towlson and Mallory, with national tennis director Ricky Mallory travelling as coach.

Trey Mallory replaces longtime stalwart Jenson Bascome who also just happens to be godfather to Trey.

Ricky Mallory said: “Jenson has been a role model and a true Ambassador to Bermuda for the sport of tennis. His example to the commitment of tennis and to the Davis Cup team is a testament of his character.

“Over the years Jenson has played in some exciting international matches and has inspired his fellow team-mates through many triumphs. His commitment to the game was even recognised by the International Tennis Federation; who in the year 2015 presented Jenson with the prestigious Commitment Award.”

Over the next few years starting this year, the BLTA plans to transition more junior players into the men's national training programme so that there will be growth within the Davis Cup team.

BLTA president Michael Wolfe said: “This is an exciting time for the Davis Cup team as we start the process of building for the future with the introduction of one our top juniors to the team. We hope Trey is just the first of a wave of up-and-coming players to be included over the next several years.

“I do however want to say a special thank you to Jenson Bascome for his many achievements and dedication to the sport and Bermuda tennis. As a Davis Cup player for many years, he was a team leader, role model and a player who you could count on in tough moments. For his contributions, the BLTA and I say thank you.”
