It was unseasonably cold for the school Tennis Championships Junior section but three talented players from L4 (Year 8) and U4 (Year 9) braved the weather and battled it out for the trophies.
Aminah played Chantal first and the spectators were treated to some fantastic serving and strong forehands, as well as some centimetre perfect backhands. Aminah then played Eleanor and every point was hard fought. Many of the games went to deuce and the groundstrokes went from baseline to baseline. The final match was Chantal versus Eleanor. Once again the standard was high and both players played some superb backhands and penetrating volleys.
All the matches were played with excellent sportsmanship and were a pleasure to watch.
The final results in reverse order were 3rd place – Aminah, 2nd place – Eleanor and 1st place Chantal. Well done to all three!BACK
