Kent Junior Tennis results
Posted 1st December 2017
Congratulations to the Old Wilsonians’ B team in the 9 & Under boys event which is part of the Kent Junior Team Tennis series. Our team of Jamie White & Ben Feltham (pictured) won their division of the Kent Junior Team Tennis Winter League 2017-18 tournament on 18 November. They had tough opposition from Gravesham, Beckenham and Chipstead Place. Over a few short hours, both lads had to play 6 singles matches each and 3 doubles matches together. They combined very well together in the doubles. The final result was pretty close and the lads were very tired but gave their all. Everyone was delighted with the result.
Our ‘A’ Team in this age category comprised Nathan Murray & Jack Stone – who were in a division of 3 teams. The opponents were Bromley Tennis Centre and Blackheath who are both very strong – importantly they were better at serving , positioning and match play than our boys. Our lads performed very well but they were up against pretty stiff competition. The event was very worthwhile and gives the lads a keen sense of what they need to work on over the winter season, to better prepare them for future tournaments.
In the 8 & Under event over the same weekend our team of Jaycob Harvey and Joshua Curzey did really well too. They beat Beckenham LTC in their first match but lost the second match to Bromley who eventually won the D group. They both really enjoyed the matches and put in 100 percent into each point. A great experience for them both.
Thanks to all the parents who supported this event
