DOMINIC Beesley broke through in to the main draw of a British Tour event which was held at Cambridge.

Forcing your way into the senior game from juniors is a tough challenge, but the 15-year-old Boston Tennis Club member made an impressive start.

Playing in his first-ever British Tour event, Dominic (pictured) progressed through the pre-qualifying rounds, winning both matches to get through to the qualifying event, where he played and beat Yorkshire’s Ryan Lonsdale and Oliver Brennan, from Lancashire .

Dominic qualified for the main draw where he was among much higher-ranked national players.
