Tennis for U13 and U15 Teams

25 May 23

Our lower School tennis teams have been incredibly busy this half term; our match reports below share details of the games, players and scores.

Woodbridge U13 Girls vs. Thomas Mills, Hartismere and Debenham

U13 Girls have played three league fixtures against Thomas Mills, Hartismere and Debenham, seeing many players play their first competitive singles and doubles matches or representing Woodbridge School for the first time in tennis. Thomas Mills was a formidable opponent and asked the best from our players in rubbers that produced some quality tennis. Woodbridge lost this tie 2-10 with Year 7’s Freya winning her singles.

Woodbridge dominated the next two fixtures, beating both Hartismere and Debenham 12-0, dropping very few games in the process. Well done to Year 8’s Frankie who has been playing at number 1 and all the other players who have representing the team so far including Year 8’s Honor, Year 7’s Lola, Freya, Grace , Annabelle and Abigail.

Woodbridge U13 Boys vs. East Bergholt

The U13 Boys also had a strong start to their league matches, winning 2 from 2 at time of writing. Woodbridge dominated against East Bergholt, winning three singles and both doubles rubbers to win the tie 10-2. The boys played exciting tennis, making their opponents by hitting tight angles and hitting multiple winners. Team work in doubles rubbers between number 1 pair, Year 8’s James S and Toby and number 2 pair, Elijah and Harry, was great to see.

Woodbridge U13 Boys vs. Finborough

This week the U13s hosted Finborough, last year’s eventually county champions. A somewhat new-look team was well up to the challenge and the tie produced the best tennis matches so far this term – an absolute pleasure to watch. The players were tested physically and mentally and games swung in roundabouts and the sudden death deuce rule demanding nerves of steel.

After six rubbers, everything was even, each team having won three each. year 7’s Pranav and Year 8’s George won their respective singles and doubles with good team work to make sure the tie goes into a match tiebreak shootout. This ‘first to ten’ tie break was a test of nerves and skill. Toby and Pranav took on the challenge and took an early lead.

5-2 up it looked like they have done most of the job, but then Finborough came back, following some unforced errors. At 6-6 momentum shifted back to Woodbridge as Pranav and Toby started to implement their tactics well again, shooting ahead to win the tiebreak 10-7 and therefore the match. Both teams were excellent and will hopefully get to meet again in a friendly later in the term. Thanks to all the players who have represented the team so far.

Woodbridge U15 Boys and Girls teams vs. RHS

The U15 Boys and Girls teams played in a friendly fixtures against Royal Hospital School. The girls team made up of Year 10’s, Tabitha and Eve, and Year 9’s Lyrah and Eloise, beat RHS 8-4, on the valley courts in School. We were grateful for the great parent support at the fixture.

The U15 Boys, consisting of all Year 9’s Alex B, Tom V, Rowan, and Oscar B, came up against top opponents, all experienced international students, which challenged our players to play fantastic tennis and also an opportunity to practice their Spanish skills. Great camaraderie was on show on each side of the net, and across the net in the double. Singles was also a competitive affair; Tom winning his match in style. Woodbridge lost the tie 2-10 but won many battles and played great tennis. This time ‘sudden death deuce’ was not on our side.

Thanks and well done to all who have played for the school so far this team and who attend tennis clubs so well.
