Moreton Hall girls took part in the prestigious National Schools' Tennis Championships held at Eton College on June 28th - 30th. This was our first time competing at this event.
The senior team were:-
Pair one Lucy Smith & Melody Yang
Pair two Jemima Scorer & Tia Barlow
Under 15s Team :-
Pair one Camilla Smith & Milly Home
Pair two Alice wait & Helen Norman
The girls all rose to the challenge against many schools from all over the country. It was inspiring for them to see so many schools at all levels of play.
The event was run as a round robin format in the first stage followed by a knock out stage.
All the girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gained so much valuable knowledge from each match played. There were some really close mashes with excellent tennis being played and they should all be proud of how they played. Congratulations must go to Melody Yang and Lucy Smith who made it through to the quarter finals of the plate event battling it out in the heat.

Mrs McDonald & Mrs Sanderson were very pleased with the girls' performances and are already planning next year's training schedule to equip the girls for this National event.
