Swimming Results

SwimmingCongratulations to the Hannah, Diana, Phoebe and Jade who swam at the Aquatics Centre in the county round of the School Games competition. In their heats the girls came 1st and 2nd in their races but unfortunately the 2nd heats had faster times. We finished 4th overall – 3 points adrift from 2nd place. However, the girls won the Cannon Relay at the end of the races.

Congratulations girls for this great success.

Hayley at the English Junior squash championship

SquashHayley competed in the Under 19 girls category of the English Junior squash championships, held at Edgbaston Priory last weekend, and came a very commendable 9th overall in a tournament which is only open to the top 16 seeded players in the country.

Competitive squash has largely had to be pushed to one side this year for Hayley, as she has committed to her academic studies, so to come out and play against the country’s best,  and perform as well as she did, was all the more impressive!

Hayley continues to promote the game and encourage other girls to get on court and enjoy it with a regular Tuesday coaching session, which she lays on after school each week at Bowdon Club. Do come along if you want to have a go!

A Big Thank You

We would like to thank all players for making this season one of the most successful for a very long time. It has also been a very enjoyable one with a lot of laughs along the way. We would also like to thank the parents for their tireless support on the sides of the pitch, in all weathers, on a Saturday morning and also for transporting the girls to fixtures and tournaments near and far.

We really do appreciate it – thank you. Mrs Finch and Mrs O’Neal

Saturday 4th July v King’s School, Chester (Away) Years 7-10

Generally for each match there will be 3 couples in each age group. However, we sometimes play with 3 players in a couple to give more girls a chance to play team tennis and also it makes it a lot easier if a player cannot play in the match through illness etc.

We have also entered 3 teams in the U15 and U13 Lawn Tennis Association School team tennis competition. These matches will largely be played after school but some may be played during school time.
