FULTON Shield 

Now in its third year! 

Cassiobury 18 June 2018

On Monday 18th June nine teams from four schools: One from Wheatfield Infants; two from Cassiobury Juniors; four from Cassiobury Infants & one from a new school Abbots Langley School, competed at Cassiobury LTC in this years Mini Red Doubles Competition.

Four teams made it through to the final round robin with the results as follows:

1st Wheatfield (Winners for the second year); 2nd Cassiobury Juniors & 3rd Abbots Langley

Certificates were presented to all the children & medals were awarded to the Winners & Runner-ups. Sadly Cassiobury Juniors were not able to attend the Final at Welwyn so Mark agreed that Abbots Langley could take their place.

My thanks to Cassiobury LTC for hosting the event & to all the parents & staff who assisted with the scoring & tea making.

 Mini Red Welwyn

The Hertfordshire Schools Welwyn Mini Red event took place on Tuesday 22 May at Welwyn Tennis Club.

The entry was one of the biggest in the last few years with 13 pairs competing to qualify for the final's day. The schools entered were Welwyn St Mary's, Broxbourne, Codicote, Sherrardswood, Roundwood, St Michael's Woolmer Green & St Albans Girl's.

A very hot sunny day produced some excellent matches & well behaved children. After playing the round robin boxes St Albans girl's 1st & 2nd team, Welwyn St Mary's & Broxbourne 1st team made it through to the semi finals. The girl's put up a good fight & eventually Welwyn St Mary's & Broxbourne contested the final with Broxbourne being the overall winners. Both teams qualified for the final's day.

The Schools final day took place on another hot day on Tuesday 3 July.

The teams for this event were Welwyn St Mary's, Broxbourne, Wheatfields (St Albans) & Abbots Langley. This was another day of excellent tennis but the holders from last year Wheatfields triumphed again beating Welwyn St Mary's 10-5 in the deciding match.

Well done to all the players for entering & to the umpires for making the day run so smoothly.
