Tennis_Racket_and_Balls1st team report

On Friday 5 February the first team tennis girls played against Herschel B.  We congratulate Dana Arries who won her singles match convincingly: 8-0. Isobel Evans and Savannah Wiegand lost their doubles 8-3. Isobel and Savannah both lost their singles as well. Since Dana and Katherine won their doubles matches, it was up to Katherine’s game was the deciding match. Perhaps a little shamefacedly, there was unconcealed delight when it became clear that Katherine had won her match! This meant that although the matches tied between Herschel and Wynberg, Wynberg won overall, because Dana and Katherine had won their doubles match and consequently gave Wynberg the extra bonus poin they needed to win. Tension was definitely high, but we do congratulate our first team girls on their victory!
2nd team report
On Friday, 5 February the second team tennis girls played against Herschel D. The team consisted of Nkensani Baloyi, Kayleigh Henderson, Inge Tripod and Catelin Marshall. Wynberg unfortunately lost 10-4.  Despite the oppressive heat, both sides pressed on couragously. Well done to Nkensani who had to fill in for a sick player, and still managed to get 6 games off the opposition. Perhaps the lessons to be learnt from this match was that most of our girls had too many unforced errors. The members of the second team will assess their mistakes and practice consistency. We commend the winning team on their play.
