Tennis Year 7-9

Great contest and games by all!

On the 23rd June 2015, Cowbridge played Barry Boys Comprehensive School in a friendly tennis fixture.Having played Bro Morgannwg two weeks before and narrowly losing, the boys were starting to get their swings back and were progressing all the time.

It was a great afternoon, where the short, sharp matches of first to three games worked brilliantly, and the pupils from both schools were excellent in officiating and managing their own matches.They were a credit to both schools.

With the mixture of pupils at the event, due to the age range being between 11 and 15, it was a big learning curve for some, especially those year 7 pupils playing three years up.It was a close contest from start to finish, but Cowbridge just edged the contest 24 games to Barry’s 20.A special mention has to go out to Chris Lewis from Cowbridge who won all of his matches, and James D and Alex H from Barry who won all of their matches also.

Well done to all that participated!It was brilliant to see pupils of all ages and experience levels getting stuck in, and ultimately 30 pupils taking part and enjoying themselves.

Man of the Match:Chris Lewis (Year 8).
