Tennis Report

In the second set of tennis fixtures of the term, 10 girls’ teams played Wellington and five boys’ teams played Winchester – in conditions more suited to sailing than tennis!

For the girls, the U15s travelled away and faced tough opposition but were unable to find the success they enjoyed in the previous fixture at Bloxham; the As lost 6-3; the Bs, Cs and Ds 0-9. The U14s, who had demonstrated great spirit in the tight encounters v Bloxham, were also up against very good opposition and, despite losing four matches 0-9, showed improvement. The U16s produced a strong performance to overcome the opposition – and weather – winning their two matches 9-0.

For the boys, the U16s travelled away and, despite losing both matches, were able to win two sets. Three seniors boys’ VIs played: the 3rds lost, the 2nds won 6-3 and for the 1st’s, despite a slow start, it came down to the final match, which they won to give them a 5½ to 3½ victory overall.
