Talented young tennis star nets store sponsorship deal

ONE of Yorkshire's most promising junior tennis players is to be given a major boost thanks to a sponsorship deal with Harrogate ski and tennis store White Stone.

Ella Riddle, 12, a pupil at Rossett School, Harrogate, is one of Yorkshire’s top young tennis players and is currently ranked four in the county and 36 in the country in her age range.

Now, thanks to a deal agreed with the Cold Bath Road sports specialist, Ella has been kitted out in top-of-the range clothing, footwear and equipment for the season ahead.

Owner Jonathan McGuinness said: “We wanted to sponsor a young, up-and-coming player who has a good attitude and a great temperament. I have watched Ella play and she is just great.”

The sponsorship deal means Ella, who trains at Harrogate Racquets Club under coach Mark Hinchliffe, can continue to concentrate on her game and continue to climb up the rankings.
