A very busy week for tennis last week. U15 girls drew 3-3 with Portsmouth Grammar School (PGS), while the U15 boys won 8-1, also against PGS. U15 girls lost 4-2 in an excellent match against St Swithuns in the Hampshire semi-final. The match went down to the wire and unfortunately we fell just short in the tie break. Huge congratulations to Romilly White, Eliza Mcfarlane, Alisia Leach and Sasha Arney, who played some brilliant tennis throughout the year to get to the semi-finals.
Our annual school tennis finals (pictured) took place on Parents’ Day in the scorching heat. A massive congratulations to all those involved for persevering through the heat and producing some wonderful tennis.
