Tennis : so near and yet so far

Were were so close to winning our second round knock-out match v a very strong Wolverhampton Girls’ High School today. 

After the 4 singles matches we were 3-1 down. This could easily have been 2-2 with one of our players losing out 7-5 in a very closely contexted rubber.

The doubles results were all square : one win for each team which meant we lost the match 4-2. The first doubles match (our first ranked player and our third ranked player) was decided on a tie-break which we unfortunately lost. Our second pair won quite comfortably 6-3. 

 So, our time in the National Schools’ competition has come to an end for another year. Well done girls for such an exciting match. You played some excellent tennis. 

Team : Amber Thoms, Olivia Smith, Georgia Bailey and Sophie Buttrum.
