Leweston’s Inter-house Tennis Festival took place this past Saturday, 24 April, with over 50 students entering the different year group competitions. The Festival involved a doubles round robin tournament in which pairs played off against all other pairings. Pairs earnt points for their House through match wins.
In the Year 7 competition we saw a very competitive draw culminate in a match between top pairings Lizzie S and Jess S against Evanna B and Izzy W. After an even set of play Lizzie and Jess managed to edge ahead to come through as winners of the tie 14 – 12. Congratulations to Lizzie and Jess for remaining unbeaten throughout the entire draw.
The Year 8 competition was another closely contested draw. The pairings of Ellie DS and Jessica W, along with pairing Lottie H and Grace H both ended with 5 wins after some very close matches. Ellie and Jessica had beaten Lottie and Grace in the draw but Lottie and Grace came away with the overall win, winning more points over their matches. Congratulations also goes to Olivia W and her partner Thomas A-B who were very close in third.
The Year 9 and 10 featured some strong players, with many school team regulars fronting for the matches of the season. Some standout performances came from Jonas G, Orlando H and Theo W-R who worked hard in their pairs to keep up with eventual joint winners Serena M and Sinali L (pair) and Henry B and Bruce R. Special note goes to Serena and Sinali for narrowly beating Henry and Bruce in their match-up 7 – 6.
Congratulations to all students who attended the festival.
