Three up-and-coming youngsters from Oxfordshire have been highlighted as some of the brightest talents in the country.

Tom Dyakowski, Alexis Canter and Connor Ferguson have all been included on the Lawn Tennis Association’s (LTA) Aegon FutureStars programme. The trio earned their place on the programme following a successful year and will now receive added support from the LTA.

Dyakowski, 17, from Chipping Norton, trains at WIN Tennis at Bisham Abbey, while Canter, 14, and ten-year-old Ferguson – both from Abingdon – receive their coaching at the town’s White Horse Leisure & Tennis Centre.
