Sonia’s list of achievements is extensive. She is pivotal when representing Banbury Westend Tennis Club in Oxfordshire Team Tennis and the Oxfordshire Junior Winter League. She was unbeaten in singles when 10U Mixed Team won the Winter League in 2018/2019 and came second in the 10U 2019 Team Tennis. Furthermore, Sonia lost neither a singles nor doubles match to clinch 14U Girls Team Tennis 2019 and 14U Junior Winter League 2018 with her partner.
Rosie Clark - Head Coach of Rosie Clark Tennis Coaching
Since the Summer of 2019, Sonia has been attending the Kim Clijsters Academy (KCA) intermittently between her school and tournament obligations. KCA is located in Bree, Belgium, and her training motivations are to assist her tennis developments and tournament preparations in an elite environment. I have coached Sonia for the past 18months and continue to do so every time she visits our tennis academy. Throughout our partnership, I've witnessed her develop into an independent and mature junior athlete. She understands the needs and demands of what a professional athlete must endure and sacrifice to provide a maximum chance of success at all levels and ages.

I have been teaching Sonia on an individual basis for the past 18 months, during this period she has improved vastly. Sonia is always looking to stretch and push herself, taking herself out of her comfort zone to improve on the court physically developing her strength and conditioning, whilst also taking the time to improve her knowledge of her own game, better understanding what she has improved and areas she still needs to improve on.
