Triple triumph for teen star Tara

Duns teenager Tara Harvey produced an incredible display of tennis to secure three titles at this year’s Senior Border Confined, played this year at the Border Tennis Centre in Galashiels.

Players and organisers enjoyed largely good weather throughout and an enthralling finals day on Saturday brought the week long tournament to a close

And after six days of matches, it was four youngsters who topped the billing in the main draw singles finals, Lewis Armstrong and Nicklas Stingl and Tara Harvey and Sophie Macbrayne.

For Harvey and Armstrong, their singles finals were the first of three for them on Saturday, with the pair teaming up in the mixed doubles and also involved in their respective mens and womens doubles finals.

But it was Harvey who earned all the bragging rights in their partnership, scooping the women’s singles in a deciding match tie-break before going on to partner Duns compatriot Joanna Dixon to victory in the women’s doubles and then joining Armstrong to take the mixed title as well.

Armstrong did pull off a double however, winning the men’s doubles with St Boswells teammate Simon Blair after earlier being defeated in the singles by another teenager Niklas Sting.
