LTA TEAM TENNIS SCHOOLS COMPETITION

Congratulations to the year 10 tennis team who have started their summer season with an impressive win over local rivals Backwell School.

 

The tennis team are representing the school in the Avon Year 10 Boys Division 1 competition, playing fixtures against many local schools, with the ambition of finishing top of their group and progressing onto the regional final stage of the LTA Team Tennis Schools Competition.

 

Marcus Witt, Themis Bower, Paddy Haresnape and Oli Weedon played some excellent tennis against a strong Backwell side who were in good form.

 

Six one-set games were played, with four wins required to win the match. After the four singles games, the scores were tied at two wins each. Marcus and Paddy pleased with their 6-1 wins over their opponents. The two doubles matches followed, with Marcus and Themis winning their game 6-4. This tied the scores overall at three wins each and meant the match went to a Champions Tie Break. A very tense affair for the players and hugely entertaining for the spectators who had gathered to watch the finale of the contest. Marcus and Paddy took on the responsibility and dominated the Tie Break from the start winning 5 points in a row and going on to win the Tie Break 10-2 and the match overall at 7-6.

 

An excellent achievement for the team, played in fantastic weather at the TeamBath Tennis Centre.
