The St Andrew’s College Top 8 tennis players faced a strong Marlow team recently. St Andrew’s faced Marlow a few weeks earlier (at the Merrifield tournament), so were able to prepare for the fierce competition they would bring.
On the day, the St Andrew’s players put up their best efforts yet, with the most incredible ground shots, smashes and close net play seen this season. It was also great to see one of our promising junior players, Jacques du Toit, in action. Nicholas Lane, David Ball and Jacques won their singles matches 8-0, 8-5 and 8-6 respectively. Nicholas Lane and Cameron Bennet, as well as Gregory Miller and David Ball won their doubles matches convincingly. Karabo van Heerden, Noah da Motta and Scott Miles all put up great fights in their individual singles matches. In the end, Marlow beat St Andrew’s by 7 matches to 5 and a closer than ever 71 games to 62.
