Teenage sensation Billy Holmes has hit a purple patch of form, landing two titles in quick succession.

The 13-year-old Hazeley Academy student won the Thursday Night A Division Singles league recently, one of the region’s top competitions.

He also won the pairs competition in Stevenage, and he added to that a place in the final at the Felixstowe U18 Youth Tournament.

Dad Mark said: “To have won the Thursday Night league is quite an achievement, especially for his age.

“He’s in a good run of form at the moment, and we hope it can continue.”

Billy is competing in Purfleet this weekend.
