Updated: Jul 26, 2019

Sixteen students competed in the North Devon Schools tennis tournament at Tarka Tennis on 17th July. Freddie Harvey and Ollie Callaghan made it through their draw into the semi-finals, as did Alex Elder and Shanley Bautista who finally lost to to West Buckland in an epic battle which lasted nearly an hour and finished in a 7-5 tie break. Lottie Chesworth and Olive Gibbon played some fantastic tennis and came runners-up in their age group, whilst Maia Frith and Grace Vowles won the Year 9/10 girls tournament, beating West Buckland in the final. Go girls!

Lucy Allix, Freya Newton, Charlie Wright, Sam Lewis, Andrew Norman, Adam Hooper, Josh Hill and Woody Farmery all played some brilliant games. Especially well done to Josh and Woody for their first tournament. Congratulations to all.
