Real Tennis

Three Wycombe Abbey girls recently participated in the Real Tennis Girls Under 21 Handicap Singles Tournament at Radley College. Real Tennis, the original racquet sport from which lawn tennis is derived, is enjoying increased publicity and the girls thoroughly enjoyed being back on court for the first fixture of the season.

Marina and Sophia both came second in their respective age groups and qualified for the quarter finals. Both played fierce matches but were knocked out after two very tight 5-6 matches. Isolde won her group and progressed to the final where she was unfortunately beaten by Wellington College.
