U13 Boys' Serve up Success

secondary school tennis website


Well done to Eddy Pope and Toby Watts who were crowned North Devon U13 champions in the North Devon Schools' Secondary Tournament at the Tarka Tennis Centre last week.

Eddy and Toby were part of a strong U13 and U15 boys and girls team  entered into the tournament which featured a large number of teams and the usual strong competition.

The U13 Boys A team won all the pool matches against a range of opposition.  In the semi-final they met a strong Braunton A.  Using their experience and good shot selection, they outwitted their opponents to face - for the second year running - Ilfracombe A.  In a nail biting match, the advantage changed throughout the match, but a very pleased West Buckland Pair eventually came out on top to become North Devon winners.U13 and U15 girls' and boys' competitions.

The U15 West Buckland teams played well throughout the day, winning the majority of matches.  Both girls and boys made it through to the semi final stages where match play was at its best!

Jack Prickett and Greg Tully faced a very strong Ilfracombe A team and although they narrowly lost 5-7, it was a fantastic display of tennis from both teams.

Martha Macdonald and Millie McLintock were successful in the semi-final comfortably beating Pilton A.  In the final they met Bideford A and were unlucky to concede the match 5-7.
