Tennis Teams Success at National Schools' Final

Girls from the Tennis Academy rounded off 2009 with an excellent showing in the Aegon League Schools National Finals, held recently at the Bolton Arena.

Having qualified for the final stages of both the Under 14 and Under 16 girls competitions, Ellesmere College was the only school in the country to achieve this feat, with the Under 16s achieving third place overall, and the Under 14s fourth. 

Team Captain, Jo Bowen, led by example, recording two of her three singles victories against higher ranked opposition.  In the younger category Olivia Jones also had two excellent singles victories.
Nikki Hoy, Director of the Tennis Academy commented, 2010 promises to be another highly successful year for the Academy, with the senior boys, girls and mixed doubles teams having already qualified for the regional knock out phase of their competitions, which will begin at the end of the month.
