Host Neelachal Academy swept the honours in the boys’ section in the second My Tennis Team junior tennis tournament at the Bal Bharati Public School, Pitampura.

Interestingly, it was an all-Neelachal affair in the under-12 boys’ event, while Indian Tennis Academy Champs, Modern Fighters and Asian Pacific Sports Stars challenged Neelachal without success in the under-16, under-14 and under-10 finals.

In the girls’ category, Indian Tennis Academy, which had dominated the first tournament, managed to win the under-16 title through Sampada Narula and Vaibhavi Shekhawat.

United Tennis Academy won the under-14 and under-12 titles, while it was Bhushan Warriors which won the under-10 title.

The two-day tournament had each tie on a best of three rubber format, with each rubber restricted to one set.
