Young Edwards shows his class


Share post:

THOUSANDS OF FANS saw the future face of road tennis on Saturday night at the Springer Memorial School and live on local television and that face belongs to 17-year-old Combermere student Emar Edwards.

Playing with the skill and focus of a chess grandmaster, Edwards captured his second 21 and Under title in the National Sports Council’s Inter Parish championships with a total demolition of the normally confident Dario Hinds of St James. 

Edwards destroyed Hinds 21-9, 21-12 to show that he is definitely a player for the future. 

“I trained even harder than normal and I worked on certain aspects of my game but I had expected Dario to provide a tougher fight. When I established a 10-2 lead in the first game I realised that my shots were working and I played to ensure that he would not get back in the match,” Edwards said.

He has indicated that he will play another year in the 21-and-under but he wants to improve his game towards the goal of becoming one of the island’s best in two years or less.
