Sports Report: Tennis - Years 8/10 vs. Hugh Christie
The Year 8 and 10 tennis teams played their first fixture of the new season on Thursday evening, away to Hugh Christie School.
Ben and Jamie were playing up a year into the Year 10 team and Felix and Oscar were playing up into the Year 8 league.
All boys started with their doubles matches and I’m pleased to say that Ben and Jamie dispatched their opponents 6-0. Dewi and Joe won their match 6-4. James and David came through in a tight match to win the tiebreaker 7-6. Felix and Oscar lost a thrilling match 7-6 on the tie-break.
Onto the singles, and Jamie Tutt swept his opponent off the court and won 6-0, before Ben Hermitage played some superb tennis to win 6-2. Don’t forget that both of these boys were playing against opponents a year older than them!
Felix, Oscar, James and David were unable to play their singles matches as we had to come off court early. At this stage, Dewi and Joe were 3-0 and 3-2 down in their respective matches. We are in the process of rearranging a date for these singles matches to be completed. However, an excellent first fixture, with some good tennis being played.
The next tennis fixture is a tough one against Skinners next week!
