Lily Holmes, one of our junior tennis members, joined a talented team of tennis players from Manchester High School for Girls, aged between 12 and 14, who competed in the AEGON Schools Tennis National Finals at Bolton Arena. The team won the bronze medal and were thus were crowned third best in the country. Given that students from the gold and silver medal-winning teams were from 'tennis' schools, where the children play tennis for over 20 hours a week, this was a remarkable achievement.
The tournament started back in May, with over 600 school tennis teams from across the country taking part. Having won the North regional section in Sunderland in late November, the girls sailed through to the national competition in Bolton where they took Bronze in the nail biting final against Bedford Girls School.
Well done to Lily for being part of such a successful team!
