Congratulations to Hutt Valley's Jordan Keene who achieves his dream of winning the New Zealand Junior Singles. Jordan has attended this event for nine consecutive years, and reached the semi final on three occasions. He was determined to finish his junior years on a high, not just for himself but for his supporters, and what an amazing feeling to pull it off.
Jordan defeated Auckland's Nikita Blair in the final who was also runner up in 2019. Jorjye Popow, Manawatu, and Kobe Bearman, Canterbury, also had a great day to finish third equal.
Manawatu's AJ Bond narrowly missed out on qualifying, but was able to turn it around and take out the Consolation event.
Good luck to all juniors for the North vs South event this evening!
