A tennis team from West Buckland Prep School have been crowned North Devon Champions, following the North Devon Schools' Winter Year 3 & 4 Tournament at the Tarka Tennis Centre on Wednesday 18th October.

Over 16 teams meant that there were plenty of matches.  The West Buckland team played strongly through the pool rounds, comfortably winning.  In the quarter-final and semi-final rounds, the competition was stronger, but the team demonstrated depth to their talent, winning all their matches.  In the final against Fremington Primary School, there were some good matches requiring patience and tactical intelligence and the West Buckland team finally prevailed. Well done to the team of Tommy Wilson, Lincoln Boden, Eric Lorimer, Freddie Tucker and Freddie Lloyd, who finished as North Devon Champions and thank you to Year 12 Harry Sampson who helped to support the team and umpired throughout the day.
