Andy Murray and Steve Redgrave were both winners at the annual Jaguar Academy of Sport Awards on Sunday evening.
Andy to be Honorary Chair of 52nd Junior Orange Bowl
The Junior Orange Bowl is proud to welcome Andy Murray as the Honorary Chair of the 52nd International Tennis Championship. Murray won the Junior Orange Bowl Boys 12U Championship in 1999 and returns to be a part of one of the most prestigious tournaments on the amateur tour.
The Junior Orange Bowl Championship remains close to Murray’s heart, “Winning the Under-12 event in 1999 is still one of my happiest memories from the sport, so I’m delighted to be able to serve as Honorary Chair for this year’s event”. Murray sent a special message to all of this year’s participants, “I wish everyone who takes part the best of luck, and hope that one day some of you will have the chance to be Honorary Chair. It’s a special tournament and your memories from here will stay with you, so enjoy it”.
The annual Junior Orange Bowl International Championship draws 1,400 of the world’s best U12 and U14 tennis players. The tournament draws players from over 74 countries to four South Florida locations to compete in the ten-day tournament. This year’s tournament will be played on December 14-23.
