Sixteen-year-old Glynn, meanwhile, was unseeded at the Kuwait ITF Juniors but still took the boys' singles title thanks to a 6-2, 6-2 win over Qatar's Jabor Mohammed Ali Mutawa in the final.
He had already ousted the number six and four seeds from the tournament en route to his first ITF title.
Glynn and partner Youssef Hassan finished runners-up in the doubles, going down 7-3 (3), 6-4 to the Qatari pairing of Ali Mutawa and Mousa Shanan Zayed.
Barry Scollo, director of tennis at Team Bath, said: "The boys did really well in terms of travelling a long distance and being able to win matches. They've established themselves as really good tournament players during this period.
"They had a good two-month training block just before this batch of tournaments and I'm really pleased with the results.
"It's great for the players' development and for the coaches to see them in this kind of environment."
