Cayla Cross, tennis professional at the Reefs Resort and Club, continues to honour her father with her latest red-ball youth development tournament.

Cross has hosted several red-ball tournaments to give the island’s children their first tournament experience and is continuing the work of her late father Howard Cross after his untimely passing in 2016.

The third, and final, tournament this year was held at the Reefs Resort and Club on December 4, with two competitions for players over and under the age of eight8. Eleven children played in the round-robin format before the winners were determined after knockout matches.

Damacio Hendrickson won the tournament for those aged eight or older with Nicholas Gakundi the winner of the under eights.

Young winner: Damacio Hendrickson won over-eight tournament
