Selborne/Clarendon Mixed Doubles Tennis Tournament

Six St Andrew’s College tennis players, along with six players from DSG took part in the Selborne/ Clarendon Mixed Doubles Tournament. The St Andrew’s/DSG doubles teams kicked off the tournament by facing the hosts, Selborne/ Clarendon. Unfortunately, we lost 10-2.

The second fixture was against Pearson and it was clear that our players needed the extra time to get up to form. The strong Pearson side won 8 games and St Andrew’s/DSG 4. Our team gained momentum and put on a great display of drop-shots and volleys to beat Framesby 12-0.

In the end, we faced Merrifield in the play-off for 5th and 6th position. Both singles and doubles matches were played in the finals. All the DSG players won their singles matches, while College showed some difficulty keeping up with their opponents. The mixed doubles matches were the deciders and St Andrew’s/DSG managed to beat Merrifield with a final score of 19 games to 17.

Well done to the players on a very successful tournament. A big thank you to Mr Blaize Hofmeyr who accompanied the players this weekend.
