The Abbey Y3 tennis team competed in the qualifying rounds of the county competition at Ipswich High School. The team was made up of Lara Zie, Georgia Pommier, Rose Jackson, Nina Chapman. With much enthusiasm the girls took on Ipswich High School in the first tie. This was a close affair with the girls playing well, and pushing nerves aside, this being their first competitive fixture. The fixture ended in a 3-3 draw but with a superior points difference, The Abbey were the winners. Next up was Brandeston in the finals of the day. Lara Zie proved she was one of the players of the day, beating her no.1 ranked opponent 10-7, after a comfortable win in the first round, and impressing the professional tennis coaches. The singles and doubles matches were close, and the girls impressed with how they improved from their first match, but The Abbey had to settle for second place on the day. With this they achieved qualification for the Y3 County Finals to be held at Brandeston in June. They showed good fitness and determination, running balls down and giving their all. Valuable experience was gained, which will be needed when they compete at the County Finals.
