Pupils from the Prep school were involved in the Year 5 and 6 North Devon Schools’ Tennis Tournament at the Tarka Tennis Centre in Barnstaple last Wednesday 23rd November. Three pairs pf boys and girls were representing the school in the well-attended competition which featured thirty other pairs from schools across the region.
The pairings of Mimi Heath (Prep 6) and Evie Ford (Prep 5) and Wilbur Guildford and Zachary Allaway (both Prep 6) won all their matches in the pool round of the competition ensuring a place in the quarter finals.
Henry Willes and Isaac Worthington (Prep 5) and both in their first full-court competition, managed to win through to the second/third play-offs where they played another six matches. Working well together, they secure second place.
Zachary and Wilbur were knocked out, against stiff opposition, in the quarter final, but Mimi and Evie managed a win against a strong pair from Caen School to reach the semi-finals.
Against a strong pair of boys from Appledore, they played well together, maintained composure and did themselves proud - finishing the competition in fourth place overall. A good day out!
