The Leys School pupils Marton Howe and Jack Seaborn break into top 100 Under-16 British tennis players

The Leys School’s Marton Howe and Jack Seaborn have been ranked within the top 100 Under-16 tennis players in Great Britain.

The Year 11 pupils played around 200 games across the country, gathering points at each competition to help improve their place within the standings.

And they also achieved plenty of success along the way, most notably through Howe winning a regional tournament and Seaborn coming out on top at the Hunstanton Tournament.

As a result, Howe has been ranked in 30th position while Seaborn is 93rd.

Howe said: “I have been playing tennis from a young age and it has taught me so much about time management and discipline.

“I am looking forward to the new year and hope to improve with each match.”

Meanwhile, Seaborn added: “Playing games each weekend is a real joy and a challenge. I am excited to do it all again this year.

“When I am on the court there is no one else to blame for my shortcoming. It is just me and my opponent, and I love that about the game.”

Both players have long-held ambitions to gain a place at an American university in order to reach the professional circuit.
