Tennis v Brambletye
U11 Mixed VI Won 6-3
We had a lovely warm welcome at Brambletye on Thursday evening for the tennis match. The children were all feeling a little apprehensive, playing with new partners and some of them playing their first match.
Our first pair, Edward and Cristina, played beautifully throughout the evening. They both had their ups and downs but recovered well each time and were an excellent pairing. They won all three of their matches (6-1, 6-0 and 6-4).
Our second pair, Harvey and Florence, were an animated pair, always communicating and laughing with each other. They got off to a tricky start playing the Brambletye first pair and losing 6-0. However, they came back stronger and won their next two games (6-0 and 6-2).
Our third pair, Freddie and Bea, had a busy evening playing some really long games. They played really well together as a pair and were very supportive of each other. All of their matches were very close which just shows the determination they had to succeed. They lost their first two matches (6-5, 6-0) but came back for a triumphant win (6-4) in their final match.
I was really impressed with the attitude and sportsmanship of all of the players. They were great representatives of Ashdown House and played some superb tennis. Well done! LP
