Tennis Teams Reach Regional Finals of Aegon League

Following their participation in the Aegon League Regional Under 15 Schools Championships that was held recently in Nottingham, the U15 Girls team are now off to the Finals in Bolton in December.

Having played and won their matches at County and Regional challenge rounds, the team progressed onto the Regional Finals. The team played Repton School, winning 6-0 and then took on Welland Park Community College in the Final, beating them 4-1. Having won the Regional Finals the School's team are now one of just 4 school teams from around the Country to play for the national title in the near future.

It has been a successful year for the Tennis Academy. In June the Girls 1st team represented Great Britain at the World Schools Championships that took place in France and now it is the turn of the U15 Girls teams to be fighting for yet another national title.

Travelling to Bolton for the Finals weekend will be Harriet Jones, Olivia Jones, Kotryna Calova, Jessica Oldham and Catriona Jones. Accompanying the Girls teams will be Nikki Hoy, Director of Tennis Academy, who commented, This is a very exciting time for the Ellesmere College Tennis Academy, the U15 Girls teams wasted no time to lead Ellesmere in to victory in the 5th year running and I am looking forward to watch them perform again in the Finals.
