Tennis: U16 Holly to Contest U18 Quarter Finals


Holly Thompson is through to the Quarter Finals of the U18 Aegon Junior International Competition - a spectacular feat, especially considering she is still only 14!

Holly, who is in Bloomsbury House, got through to the next stage of the competition, which is taking place in Liverpool, by beating Louise Ronaldson 6-2, 2-6, 6-3.

She is now competing in the County Championships. 

Earlier in the week the Lower Fifth pupil beat the 4th seed Apolline Rassat from France - an achievement described by Bede's Director of Tennis and former Great Britain No.1 Julie Salmon as fantastic.

Ms Salmon went on to add, "Everyone at Bede's is behind you Holly - we couldn't be prouder of you."
