Boys Tennis Team Makes National Finals at Queenswood

Ellesmere College has once again qualified for the finals of the LTA Team Tennis Schools National Championships (Glanvill Cup).

The boys team consisting of Aleksandras Calovas, Marcus Reinert, Sam Chapman and Henning Bergmeyer won through the qualifying rounds with wins against Newcastle-under-Lyme, (12-0) and Kings School Chester (8-4). In the regional final the team took on Fallibroome Academy from Macclesfield. Sam Chapman played a blinder against his opponent winning a shoot-out 15 - 13, with the team convincingly coming out on top with a 6-0 victory.

The LTA Team Tennis programme consists of three nationally organised competitions, which provide Secondary School and Further Education pupils with the opportunity to play regular competitive tennis.

Stephen Welti, coach at Ellesmere College said "I couldn't be more proud of how the boys team have performed. The great strength of the competition is that it's a team event and players have worked hard together to achieve success."

The finals will take place on Wednesday 6 to Saturday 9 July at Queenswood Tennis Centre, Hertfordshire.
