The tennis season kicked off with a busy day of fixtures, Woodbridge welcoming 3 different school and 4 teams.
The u13B girls made light work of their opponents from Ipswich High School. The team of Freya Huxley, Sophie Graham, Saffron Holliday and Annabel Yates played excellent tennis individually and also combined well in their doubles matches. Woodbridge won 5 of the 6 matches.
The u13B boys beat their opponents from Brandeston Hall. Charlie Mayhew, Joshua Graves, Oliver Buchanan and Giles Kelleway only dropped 5 games in six sets, dominating the fixture.
It was less easy going for the u13A team but they frustrated a strong Ipswich team. The result went down to the wire will nail biting doubles matches which could swing the tie either way. Alex Evans Lombe and John Max lost their enthralling doubles match 6-7 in the end whilst James Martin and Alex Weir-Simmons came back from behind to upset the Ipswich no.1 pairing 7-6. Woodbridge lost the match by 4 rubbers to 2, making for an exciting afternoon of tennis.
The u15A boys also faced tough opponents from Ipswich School. Their cause was not helped when Adam Wildbore suffered an injury midway through the first doubles match. Adam showed true character attempting to continue the fixture with a damaged playing hand. The team of Eden Wigzell, Oliver Bacon, Hugo Kelley and Adam unfortunately came out second best this time, but have gained valuable experience for the rest of the season.
The next fixtures are u13A boys and u13B girls against Orwell Park on Tuesday 28 April.
