Southam v Aylesford
Last night saw another tennis fixture against Aylesford. Southam did well against the team of predominantly Year 8s with many of our 7s showing control and precision against their talented developing squad.
Sarah C was unbeaten in her singles and doubles rubbers. She quickly established herself as the player to beat with an accurate, powerful and fluid quality of tennis. Both squads were seeded 1-8 to allow challenge in all levels of ability. Most improved was Seb P, he improved tactically, playing to space, forcing opponents to come up with a shot to pass him that triggered errors. The whole team were great and seemed to enjoy the experience of competitive tennis.
Aylesford did come out deserved winners, winning 16 – 8 of their rubbers. They were a lovely bunch of lads, we look forward to closing the margins next season.
Finally a reminder to all Southam budding tennis players club if open to boys and girls Wednesday after school.
