On Saturday 19th May our 10U Team travelled to Tunbridge Wells for our latest round in the Aegon Team Tennis Kent Competition.
The opening matches saw Oliver Richards playing Florence Byers and Dushan Sreckovic against Jack Pinnington Jones.
Both matches proved to be closely fought affairs with hardly anything between the players. After some great tennis Oliver left the court having beaten Florence 4-0, 4-0 whilst Dushan just lost out to Jack 4-5, 2-4.
Meanwhile JoJo Thomas partnered Stephen Friend to take on Archie Turner and Adam Fotherington. This was a really tight match with everything being decided by a championship tiebreak which saw Stephen and JoJo being beaten 10-12.
For the second round JoJo faced Archie whilst Stephen played Adam. Once again these were extremely close matches with the final scores not reflecting the points played. Although both Stephen and JoJo worked hard they were unable to convert crucial points and left the court with Tunbridge Wells taking the games.
On the other court Ollie and Dushan teamed up to finish the afternoon with what proved to be a real battle with Florence and Jack. The second set saw both teams taking it in turns to edge ahead before Ollie and Dushan were just able to pull in front to win the match 1-4, 4-5(5).
We’d like to thank Tunbridge Wells for hosting the match and providing all the players with a great tea!!!!!
