Tennis Pairs Make Clean Sweep of Finals

winter 2016

West Buckland Tennis Team had an extremely impressive performance at this week’s North Devon Schools’ Winter Tournament at the Tarka Tennis Centre in Barnstaple, with our pairs reaching the final in every category.

Going one better, Martha Macdonald, with partner Millie McLintock, and Sacha Chunilal-Moberley and Greg Tully, played really well to win the U13 Girls’ and U15 Boys’ sections respectively.  Martha and Millie managed to hold off the other West Buckland pairing of Emily Jakes and Chloe Parry in a close fought final.

Other runner-up pairs were Holly Crosbie and Ester Cooper, in the U15 Girls’ and Eddy Pope and Toby Watts in the U13 Boys’.

Head of Tennis, Rachel Thompson, was impressed by the team’s attitude.  “Against some very tough opposition from other schools, the whole team held their nerve and kept their heads, playing some really good tennis at times.”
