This year we entered both a boys and a girls team in the Monkhouse Shield - a one day end of season tennis tournament for clubs in Cheshire for Under 18s.
Eleven boys and eleven boys teams entered. The girls found the competition tough and did well to win one of their four matches. The boys were very unlucky to lose both their initial round robin matches - the first on a tie break 8-6, and the second by just one game. However they then competed in a further round robin group and came out winners of both their matches and thus their division. And here are (three of) the boys with their trophy:
The teams were as follows:
Girls - Vienna Simic, Lena Signey, Julie Bonnet Durville, Charlotte Thackwray
Boys - Jack Ronnie, Zac Roberts, Jack Mather, Max Ridings
