One of his videos was shared across Wimbledon’s social channels and quickly spread by word of mouth.
Cebu said: “I decided to wear it Ticktaku The sound of the video is different, so I thought it was a good app.
“My family and friends really enjoyed it, they all gave me really good comments.
“It was a great feeling to take on various challenges. My mother lined up the laundry and gave me a ball, but when I went to the court I felt very good and felt like I had never heard of it.
“The court that went down the road from me was recently refurbished and I can’t wait to get there right now.”
He has won the Young Person of the Year at the Tennis Wales Awards.
Mother Melissa Davis, head coach of the Witch Church Tennis Club, said:
“He was playing outside and flipping the ball with his feet and said it would be a great challenge for tennis. We came up with different challenges and decided to post them online and they were recognized. I started.
“The ideas were mostly hiss and entertained me because I couldn’t go to the actual court. We pushed ourselves every day and Cebu enjoyed them completely.”
