A team of four players comprising of Stuart S, Victor M, Joshua O-P, and Kelvin L qualified to take part in the Team Tennis Schools Regional Finals held at Loughborough University.
Their first match was against Bishop Vesey Grammar School. All pupils won their singles matches: Victor 4-0, Stuart 4-2, Kalvin 4-1 and Joshua 4-1.
Stuart paired up with Victor who won their doubles match 4-1, with Kelvin and Joshua also winning 4-1. This then put the team into the semi-finals against the number one seeds, Thomas Telford School.
Stuart went down 1-4 in his singles match against a very good 3.1-rated national player. Joshua lost 2-4, Kalvin won 4-0 and unfortunately, Victor lost on a tiebreak after two match points 4-5. This put us 3-1 down with the doubles to play, and we needed to win both.
Pleasingly, Joshua and Kalvin won their doubles match 4-1 and it was all down to the last doubles, which we sadly lost 1-4.
It is a great achievement to reach the semi-finals of the Regional Finals being the first year that Bromsgrove has entered.
Huge congratulations to the team.
