Tennis @ National Finals in Bolton
Bede's Senior Girls and Mixed Tennis Teams both made it through to the National Finals (Top 8 in the Country) in February and so travelled up to Bolton last week to take part in two three-day tournaments.
This competition is explicitly for players with ratings no better than a 7.1; this means that several of Bede's internationally ranked players could not compete.
Julie Salmon, Bede's Director of Tennis, said, "Sophie Samland, George Sillett, Charlotte Koenig, Bart Gill, Kayleigh Bonwick and Elizaveta Lukinskaya all played very fine tennis across the tournament and deserve huge amounts of praise for representing the school so brilliantly."
Despite battling hard, Bede's Senior Girls did not win their group, falling foul after some tough matches against Strathallan Scotland, Framlington College and Ellesmere College.
In the Senior Mixed however, Bede's fared a little better, enjoying wins over Millfield and Strathallan.
After a nail-biting semi-final against Framlington, Bede's fell just short, losing out on a place in the final by one tie break.
Nevertheless, Bede's is now ranked as a Top 4 Tennis School in the Country for its Mixed Teams, which is testament to the strength and depth of our Tennis Academy.
Congratulations to Sophie, George, Charlotte, Bart and Kayleigh, and a special mention must go to Dorter House's Elizaveta Lukinskaya who managed to win 11 out of 12 of her sets in both the Senior Mixed and Senior Girls events.
