A YOUNG tennis player was selected from more than 500 others as a potential star of the future.

Harvey Conway, nine, from West Wickham, was one of the runners-up at a training camp held by Tim Henman after being specially selected to attend.

The youngster said: "I really enjoyed the training camp. I got to meet lots of new friends from all over the country. My favourite part was meeting Tim and being able to play tennis with him - that was amazing.

"I was really happy to have been chosen as a runner-up and I love my signed tennis racquet."

The camp, held last Tuesday, was hosted by Robinsons to celebrate 75 years of sponsoring Wimbledon. Head Coach Dan Bloxham said: "Both Tim and I were really impressed with Harvey and the energy and skill that he showed throughout the competition. It was his agility, timing and fitness level that made him stand out in the competition and I hope he takes some tips from the camp into what I am sure will be a bright future in the game of tennis."

Wimbledon runs from June 21 to July 4.
