Tennis serves up a future for Anguilla

As the Queen's baton stops for a short stay in Anguilla, Mark Beaumont visits a tennis school that is balancing sport and education.

For the young people of Anguilla, excelling in sports has become a way of accessing higher education.

Mitch Lake set up a tennis summer school in 1996 with the aim of making the sport accessible to young people.

BBC Queen's Baton Relay presenter Mark Beaumont discovered how the success of the school is now helping students gain scholarships overseas.
