On Friday, 8 February, the Somerset College boys’ 2nd Tennis team played against Stellenbosch High School in an away fixture.
Although we lost this fixture by 2 matches to 4, Sean Irwin and Oliver Pritchett who played at numbers 2 and 4 respectively, played superb tennis to beat their strong opponents. They both won their pro-set matches by 8 games to 6.
The other two players who represented the College in this match were Michael Atkinson and Joseph Edwards.
This coming week the Somerset College boys’ 2nd team will be playing against Parel Vallei on Monday here on our courts. On Tuesday our boys’ 1st and 2nd teams will be playing against Paul Roos Gymnasium also in a home fixture.
