Worksop College at the National Tennis Competitions

Worksop College U13 Boys travelled to Shrewsbury for the Midlands Final of the LTA Tennis Cup.

. Starting the day against Boston Grammar School, it was clear that this format would be tight, with all four boys having a singles and a doubles match. The match was tied at 3-3, so a sudden death 'shootout' tiebreak was needed. Unfortunately, Boston's number one seed dominated proceedings to put Worksop into the 3rd Place Playoff. 

Our opponents were John Kyrle High School, where again the doubles and singles were split 3-3. However, this time, Tom and Max were able to edge a nervy shootout to ensure Worksop finished in 3rd overall. I great achievement.

Mr Heeramun, Head of Racket Sports commented "It's a real accomplishment to qualify for this during the summer term and to perform well today. Boy's tennis has grown massively at the College in recent years so I hope it won't be the last time we are here."

Well done to players Finn, Tom, Max and Thomas!
