Tennis: Toby selected to North Wales squad
July 15, 2021

A young Rydal Penrhos pupil has earned selection to a regional tennis squad after impressing coaches.

Our young sports stars are a source of great pride at Rydal Penrhos. They work exceptionally hard both in school and with various organisations and clubs across the region in a wide range of different areas of interest, achieving a considerable amount along the way.

Toby Evans joined the school community recently and has already integrated superbly with his peers, impressing our truly incredible teaching staff with a sound work ethic both in and out of the classroom.

It didn’t take long for Toby’s tennis skills to emerge. The pupil has been playing the sport since age four after really developing a passion for it during a holiday club – proving to be a natural on the court despite his tender age.

This has seen Toby progress his game well, developing all areas of play and things have really come on for the pupil over the last 12 months thanks to his outstanding commitment.

Toby was rewarded for his exceptional application with qualification to represent Kent before relocating to North Wales and enrolling at Rydal Penrhos as a Year 3 pupil.

The talented youngster wasted no time in impressing coaches in the region and has already been chosen for the North Wales youth development set-up – which represents another notable accolade for a pupil who has ambitions to become a Welsh champion one day.

If Toby manages to reach these lofty goals, he would be the latest Rydal Penrhos pupil to achieve such a feat, with Ellie Scarff the most famous former pupil that’s gone on to achieve great things in the tennis world, winning national titles and even appearing on the LTA Tour.

Toby will be supported by staff at the school throughout his development, which includes using the school’s impressive tennis courts at our New Field sporting facility both during school hours and in the holidays.

Everyone at Rydal Penrhos would like to congratulate Toby and wish him the very best of luck with the North Wales squad moving forward.
