Schools’ Tennis Championships
9th December, 2014
Merchiston’s unseeded U13 team managed to fend off top seed Reed’s School and second seed Bournemouth Collegiate School at the Aegon National Schools Finals in Bolton last weekend. The team claimed its victory after winning all its matches in a high quality and competitive event. It started with a convincing doubles win against Reeds School. In the final it faced Trent College from Nottinghamshire; it was left to Jamie to win his singles match to secure the title.
The U15 squad was placed runner-up behind Reed’s School. Merchiston made it to the final to defend its title and made a promising start with a win at the number two doubles. However, Reed’s went on to claim number 1 doubles and all four singles rubbers to claim the title with a 10-2 win.
