A successful season of tennis culminated in a very enjoyable staff and pupils' doubles tournament followed by tea and prizes in the dining hall on Thursday 27th June.  This year, four coaches and three other teachers made up some of the total 14 pairs, giving pupils the opportunity to ‘take on the teachers'!  The pupils performed rather better than the staff, with only Miss Pryce reaching the semi-finals, but everyone enjoyed playing their matches, many of which were very close with just 1 point difference between winning and losing.

Box 1: Cameron L & CMP

Box 2: Alex J & MacKenzie P

Box 3: Conrad Y & Conran C

Box 4: Maxime S & Aryan D

Alex & Mackenzie won their semi and Maxime and Aryan won their match, meaning that the final was between the two.  Maxime and Aryan were able to win the crucial points in a hotly contested match to take the shield and title – well done!

Afternoon Tea & End of Season Awards

Following the tournament, staff and pupils headed over to the dining hall for Afternoon Tea and the Awards – a civilised way to end the season.  Well done to everyone, including the Upper 5th and Upper 6th who played in matches at the start of the season. Everyone truly represented the spirit of good ‘sportmanship’ at the College and are a credit to the school.
