Tennis Success

The girls’ 1st IV tennis side was crowned the Gloucestershire and South East Wales champions on Tuesday 17 November in the Lawn Tennis Association Senior Students competition. Playing against Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls, the team was tied 2-2 after the singles. Annabel Mundy (U6, A) and Charlotte Ball (L6, Ch) won convincingly at #2 and #3 seeds. The match outcome, and that of the group, hinged on the two doubles matches. Charlotte Ball (L6, Ch) and Georgia Taylor (U6, Ch) played fantastic tennis and easily won 6-1. Annabel Mundy (U6, A) and Sophie Mathews (U6, A) were not to be outdone, winning 6-2 and securing an overall match result of 4-2. Tabitha Burt (5th, A) was unable to play in the final group match but has been a hugely valuable member of the squad. The girls now play the winners of the South Wales group in February for a place in the national finals, and therefore top eight schools in the country! Head of Tennis, Mr Steve McQuitty commented, “The girls are understandably delighted by their performance and the opposition coach commented on how sporting and fair our girls were.”
