After beating a very strong King’s High Warwick team 5 sets to 1 to reach the Regional Finals, Bromsgrove School’s U16 girls’ tennis team had an incredibly tense Finals match on Thursday 14th November at Tipton Indoor Tennis Centre. The score was level after 6 sets, so a championship tie-break had to be played.
Josie Ward and Kelly Lin fought hard but lost 10-8 to the eventual winners and, therefore, missed out on qualification for the National Finals by the smallest of margins. Josie and Izzy O’Connor had played extremely well, winning both their singles matches, as well as their doubles matches together.
A hugh well done to Izzy O’Connor, Josie Ward, Kelly Lin and Grace Richardson on coming so close and finishing in the top 16 in the country.
