Guyana’s Zion Hickerson earned second place in the Boys U10 singles and first place in the Boys U10 Doubles at the Lease Operators Junior Tennis Tournament in Trinidad and Tobago recently.

The nine-year-old Guyanese player competed fiercely in the singles final against Trinidad and Tobago’s U10 National Champion, Nicholas Mc Letchie, ultimately losing in a super tie-break in the third set (4-0, 0-4, 13-15).

In the doubles competition, Hickerson paired with T&T’s Malik Bain to win the title with a score of 5-4, 4-1.

Hickerson, who is also the country’s national U11 Squash Champion, will now prepare to represent Guyana at the Junior CASA (squash) Championship in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) from June 29 to July 7.

The St Gabriel Primary student extended a special thank you to the Guyana Lawn Tennis Association, DeSinco Trading, Jai Signs and Designs, Toucan Industries, Nabi Construction, National Hardware, Ramchand Autospares, Beacon Cafe, Bumper-to-Bumper Service, and S & L Electrical Agency for making his participation in Trinidad and Tobago a success.
