The year 9 and 7 teams had mixed fortunes against Loreto. The year 7 team was made up of girls who had not played for school before and who play a special game called ‘diddly-diddly’. Each team played 3 matches of 15 minutes. How many games can you win in 15 minutes? The year 7 team had a great time and won by 36 games to 10. The year 9 team (which included a number of girls who had not played for school this season) had a tough time losing to a very strong team. 

Both teams played some very good tennis. Well done.
