Senior Tennis v Stonyhurst Won 11-2
An easy win over Stonyhurst on Wednesday. With 1st seeds Nicole Jeffries & Holly Hesford winning 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.

As Stonyhurst tuned up with only 5 pairs we shared the 4th and 5th pair matches so our 4th pair of Lily Rudd & Celine Dunkel won 6-2 against the 4th pair and 6-1 against the 5th pair. Our 5th pair of Emilia Tyser and Eliza Twiddle won 6-1 against their 4th pair and our 6th pair Sophie Webber & Iona Lindsay lost against their 5th pair 4-6.

Junior Tennis v Stonyhurst Won 13-3
A resounding win against our local rivals with only Stonyhurst No 1 pair giving us any problems, some closer games down the pairings but convincing displays by Amy Lewin and Annabel Tyser, Ruby Page and Rosie Herman, Lucy Preston and Sarah Long, Georgia Turner and Grace Sykes and Hannah Gale and Becky Hadfield winning both their matches. We are still finding our seedings but the girls are producing some exciting tennis at the start of this season.
Jnr B Rounders v Stonyhurst Lost 9-14 ½
An indoor game due to weather. Some confident batting seeing Stonyhurst edge ahead in the second innings, Sedbergh with work to do in the field with basic errors creeping in. Good to play the fixture though and game experience gained for our Junior B side.
U15 Tennis v BGS Won 8-1
Some excellent results against below par BGS with pairings of Polly Bell & Georgie Boyd Moss, Josie Coulthard & Julia Haywood and Amy Lewin and Annabel Tyser securing a strong 8-1 win, the most games lost being a 6-4 win by Josie and Julia against the BGS No 1 pairings, well done girls, unbeaten so far.

Well done to the U14 tennis players who continue to improve, Issi Chamberlain and Imogen Thompson forming a strong partnership to drop only 3 games in their 3 set win. 2nd and 3rd pairings had some tougher opposition but still Sedbergh came out with the win 6-3. Good tennis played in windy conditions.
