Mallory takes exciting step in his burgeoning tennis career
Bermuda’s Trey Mallory has signed a national letter of intent to play men's tennis next season at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, in the United States.
Mallory is the youngest player to be selected to Bermuda's Davis Cup team and has represented the nation in eight matches. He has won four International Tennis Federation doubles championships and has finished as runner-up in four singles tournaments.
"Trey has a huge amount of international experience in the ITF's and Davis Cup," said Mait DuBois, the university’s veteran head coach. "He was able to reach a fairly high world ranking without the benefit of getting his final year in the juniors.
"We were most impressed with Trey after speaking with a number of his coaches. Everyone spoke very highly of his character, work ethic and his potential. We are extremely excited to have Trey join us next fall."
Mallory is the top-ranked junior player in Bermuda and has reached an ITF world ranking of 492. In May of 2018, he became the youngest player from Bermuda to win a Davis Cup match and the first Davis Cup player to win on his debut.
Mallory will be the program's first player from Bermuda since 2000 and only the third overall. He joins Jonathan Ingham (1995-99) and James Collieson (1998-2000) as the only players from the island to wear a Seahawk uniform.
