Tennis Manitoba’s inaugural Florida Junior Tour came to a close December 15 with Shawn Sophasath winning a Casely International Championships U14 title. Joining Sophasath on the Tennis Manitoba team – which played five two-day tournaments in Florida – were Stefan Barre and coach Jared Connell. Sophasath (at middle in picture below) played 17 total matches and Barre (second from right) played 12.

“I hope this Tour will kick start the motivation and planning for 2016,” said Connell. “Really important for our players to see this big world of tennis out there and that they can be a part of it.”
