QM Hosts New Tennis Tournament
QM held an exciting Tennis event for the first time this week as we welcomed 11 visiting schools for the inaugural U12 and U13 Schools’ Doubles Tournament. The teams were competing for the Mitchell Award in their respective age groups – the trophies for which were kindly donated by our very own Head of Racquets, Karen Mitchell.
The weather was perfect and there was a really lovely atmosphere in the QM grounds. All of the girls conducted themselves brilliantly and, importantly, played some very impressive Tennis. One spectator commented “I thought the whole event was organised brilliantly and I’m sure all the girls who were there will have had a fabulous day. It was lovely spectating as well. I particularly enjoyed watching some of those U13 matches. What a superb standard of Tennis!”
There were some incredibly close matches and the title race in the U13 Tournament came right down to the wire. The results were as follows:
1st Scarborough College
2nd RGS Newcastle
3rd Queen Margaret’s 1
1st Sheffield High School 1
2nd Moreton Hall
3rd Sheffield High School 2
Well done to all competitors for such a wonderful day of Tennis.
