Cullercoats Tennis Club’s Emma Charlton tops county leaderboard

Local tennis player Emma Charlton capped a great winter season by winning her first county tour title in Stockport,Cheshire.

The Cullercoats Tennis Club player, who is ranked number two in Northumberland, won 5-4, 2-4, 10-7 in the final.

Coaches said she has improved massively mentally as well as technically over the last year and the win elevates her to the top of the county tour leaderboard for both 12 and under and 14 and under age groups.

As well as hopefully being selected for Northumberland’s 14 and under county cup team, she is looking forward to her first year playing for Cullercoats ladies’ teams.
