On Saturday 11th May our 12U boys team faced Sundridge Park at home in their first match of this season’s Aegon Team Tennis event. Our team were Oliver Richards, Dushan Sreckovic, JoJo Thomas and Stephen Friend.
Oliver and Dushan took to the courts first to play the singles matches. Oliver took on William Everett whilst Dushan faced Isak Larsson-Yaprak. Both matches proved to be very close affairs with some great rallies and interesting points. Oliver took an early lead in his match but William’s greater strength pulled him through to take the win 0-6, 6-4, 10-2.
On the other court Dushan was having a real battle with Isak who managed to pull through and take the win 6-3, 6-3. Therefore going into the doubles we were 4-0 down.
Oliver and Dushan then passed the reins to JoJo and Stephen who were to play the doubles. Once again the match proved to be extremely close with Sundridge just taking the lead to win the first set 6-4. Unfortunately rain suspended play and William and Isak offered the walkover which meant that the afternoon finished 2-4 to Sundridge Park.
