No rest for Māori tennis youth, Paige Hourigan

By Wikitōria Day

Paige Hourigan is the embodiment of endurance. Even though her first tournament for the week is over, she's now striving to reach a top spot in the NZ Tennis Championships.

It's clear to see that she's focussed on her games and the different movements made by her opponent. Today, she beat Annabel Ellis in both sets, 6-2, 6-1.

Despite there being very few supporters present at this competition, her whänau have remained a permanent support throughout her entire tennis journey.

The finals will be held this Monday, and Paige is very clear about what she wants to do over the next few days.
