February 2013 - Kent Team Tennis - 9U

Our 9U Team of Ciaran Brewer and Will Gee recently reached the county finals of The 9U Kent Team Tennis event held at Bromley.

To reach the finals Ciaran and Will had to beat players from Deal, Wye (B Team) and Canterbury ITC which they did without losing a rubber.

On finals day both boys played really well. They beat Kings Hill in both their singles matches and just lost out in the doubles 7-4, 6-8, 6-8. However with a 2-1 rubbers lead they progressed to the semi’s where they met Wye (A Team).

Ciaran was up first to face Louis Temple. Louis was able to take the win for Wye. With everything to play for, Will took to the court to play Lucas Hanley. With real determination and some great tennis Will took the rubber 8-6, 6-8, 7-3. The doubles proved to be an exciting match which was so close that the result could have gone either way. However Wye were able to just pull ahead and took the win 5-7, 6-8

It wasn’t long till the boys were back on the court playing South Eastern Tennis in the third/fourth playoff. The Appeti lads never really looked back and both boys won their singles in straight sets. The doubles once again was close but this time Ciaran and Will were able to take the match 7-5, 7-5.

Overall our team finished third out of the twenty seven teams who entered the competition.

Well done boys!!!
