Senior Boys’ First Team
The senior boys’ first tennis team had a close and tough encounter against Strand High School in a league match on their courts on Friday. The College team was weakened by the absence of our number one player, Charles Fauël, who is nursing an injury at the moment. Tanguy Jongen, Clive Nicolle, Jacques Morris and Jordan Haantjes found Strand too strong and we lost this fixture by 2 matches to 4. Tanguy who played at number one and Jacques who played at number three excelled when they both won their singles.
