Grant Updates: Kate and Jenny

Kate Horsburgh and Jenny Nesbitt were ganted in September 2014 with £300 towards their sporting career. Well done to them both and you can view their full athlete profiles here.

Here are their recent updates:

Kate Horsburgh:

Kate finished the 2014/15 winter season as the highest rated girl in Herefordshire and Worcestershire combined county at 16 and under level.

In February, Kate represented the county at 18 and under level, winning all her singles and doubles matches against the three counties played (Oxfordshire, Leicestershire and Shropshire). She also made her debut for the senior county side in the Winter County Cup Championship in November, as a 14 year old, being the youngest player to be selected for the team for a number of years.

Kate reached two finals of regional tournaments in the 2014/15 winter season, and has had a great start to the new summer season, winning the Bristol and Bath hardcourt championships under 16 title in early April 2015, having just moved into this age group.

She has continued to play regularly for Worcester Lawn Tennis Club, being unbeaten in the women’s doubles (with her sister Ruth), and losing only one mixed doubles match in the county leagues over the winter season.

During the winter season, on the recommendation of her coach, she switched to a heavier racket (each racket costs £160, and she takes 3 for tournaments). She also needs a regular supply of tennis shoes (at £60 per pair) – typically a pair of trainers last her about 2 months, and different trainers are required for different playing surfaces. Her racquets typically require re-stringing at least every two months (at £20 per racquet). As she continues to grow taller, she has also had to acquire new tennis clothing.

In addition to this equipment cost, and ongoing coaching costs (£25 per hour for one on one coaching), there have been travelling and hotel costs associated in playing in regional and national competitions – she has played in events as far afield as Grantham and Bath over the 2014/15 winter season.

The financial support that she has received from Sport Worcester continues to be of substantial assistance in allowing Kate to pursue her tennis career. We are very grateful for this.

Jenny Nesbitt:

The £300 I have received from Worcester Sport has supported me in achieving so much over the past 6 months. I have been able to use the money to get myself to races and stay over the night before which has enabled me to prepare and fully ensure that my preparation for big races has been as good as possible. Not only this but I have been able to invest in better nutrition, allowing me to recover faster and train harder. I am so thankful that I have been given this grant and it means a lot to me and the dreams I have and want to achieve.

Over the past 6 months, I have been asked to represent my country 3 times over the Cross Country. These experiences have been once in a life time opportunities and being able to pull on the England vest and wear it with pride is something magical every time. Gaining selections to these races was only able to be achieved by traveling to the selection races and ensuring I had the correct build up to the races, something that was much more easily achieved with my grant. Not only that but I was also First Reserve for the European Cross Country Championships in December, something I was gutted to miss out on, but also proud to get so far!

Over the winter season I have also placed top 12 or higher in all my races. I was unbelievably happy to win my first ever senior race over some tough competition in Milton Keynes and this gave me a big boost for the rest of the season. Placing 2nd at the Midland Champs and 3rd in the National Cross Country Relays were also highlights.

I was unfortunate to get injured over the Christmas period which put me out of running for three weeks. This was a great shame, but I think I have managed to get back strongly, something that was made easier through being able to pay for emergency physio (before 206 physio came to the rescue!) and additional rehab aids from the grant I had.

Since I have been given the grant I have also been working hard helping Steve Cram promote the Worcester City 10km which will be held in September again, which in itself has been an exciting and eye opening experience! I love being able to help and being involved in the promotion of a race that means so much to me is a great opportunity!

I am now looking forward to the summer season and the track and road races! I am targeting the European U23s in Tallinn in July where I hope to compete over the 10km on the track! I am looking forward to the build up towards the race and I am certain that the money I have left will enable the best preparations possible!

I would like to say thank you so much for the grant and the provision of the opportunities that you have allowed me to gain!
