Students from CedarBridge Academy have been treated to an inspiring visit from Gavin Manders, the Bermuda tennis ace.

The Island’s No 1 dropped into their Homework Academy, run as part of the Beyond Rugby programme with Family Centre and Bermuda Rugby Football Union, to speak about his journey to the top.

Darren Woods, Family Centre community support worker, said Manders spoke to the teenagers about how he gained a scholarship to Florida Gulf Coast University and how he used adversity to motivate himself to be successful.
