Tennis, fun and great people made for a fantastic time for players, coaches and parents at the Buccaneer Hotel Resort on St. Croix.

On the boys’ singles draw, American Graeme Angus with family roots here on St. Croix, won the boys’ title with great local support from family and friends. Graeme is excited to be winning here on-island, a place he visits several times a year.

In boys’ doubles, it’s two titles in a row for the pair of Noble Renfrow (USA)/FInn Willman (New Zealand) after an easy win over the Canadian pair of Antoine Martel/Samuel Pelletier (Canada).

On the girls’ side, number one seed Cookie Jarvis-Tredgett (CAN) wins over compatriot Avery Alexander in two easy sets 6-1, 6-1. Jarvis-Tredgett also claimed the doubles title with her partner Johanna Wnorowski (USA).

“Wanted to thank the USVI and the tournament organizers. We had a great time here and got a chance to go out after matches and even go on a trip to Buck Island,” said one of the players.

Another first-timer, who is excited to play more International Tennis Federation (ITF) Junior tournaments, and his father also had great things to say about the tournament. “This is first the International Tennis Federation run for Priyansh, and we enjoyed the island. A big round of applause goes to Andrei and the team, a well-choreographed tournament from transparent communications to scheduling. Also, a big shout out to Physio who looked after my son’s injury. This is my first time on St. Croix, happy to come back for the future ITF tournaments!”

USVI Cup 1 and 2 had a fantastic two weeks
