On Thursday 11 October, the tennis team and Miss Khosla travelled to New Hall School in rural Essex.
This was the Regional play offs following last year’s matches, in which we had finished as County Champions, beating St Pauls, Francis Holland, Channing and Highgate. We had some extremely tough matches in the singles and doubles, ending on a 3-3 draw. This meant that we ended up going to a doubles shootout which we narrowly lost 10-7. I think everyone played extremely well, and New Hall was just a bit stronger than us and a lot stronger than anyone we had played before.
A special thanks must go to Miss Khosla and Francesca for coaching, entering and bringing us to these competitions. Also, well done to the players involved in the matches; Giulia (Y8), Sophie (Y9), Amina (Y9) and Fedra (Y9).
