Sam Lee was competing in the under 11 boys National Championships for the first time, giving him an excellent opportunity to play against opponents from across the country. Sam was drawn in the same group as the number 1 seed, and although he didn’t win any of his matches, it was a great experience for him, including playing on the live stream court!
