Holly’s Florida foray 

Shropshire tennis ace Holly Mowling, the captain of the county ladies’ side, will play in America later this year after receiving her second international call-up. Holly has been selected to play for GB over-35s in the International Tennis Federation’s Young Seniors World Team Championships at Miami Beach in Florida in October.

It’s Broseley resident Holly’s second international call-up after being chosen to lead the England over-35s team in the Four Nations Championships in Glasgow last year. Holly, a coach at Bridgnorth Tennis Club, says, “It was really exciting to hear that I’d been selected to represent Great Britain, which is my biggest achievement in tennis. I knew I’d been doing well in the main events and that I couldn’t do much more, but I was still very surprised to get the call-up.

“It’s going to be very hot indeed and very humid, so my training started well in the heatwave!”
