Mini Orange Competition 2017

New Champions - Roundwood! 

Nine teams of enthusiastic Year 4 tennis players representing  schools from all over Hertfordshire took to the courts at St Albans Tennis Club for the Herts Schools annual Mini Orange Competition.  Each team consisted of two pairs who played doubles against the other teams in their Group.  The Tie Break format was used, and every single point the players won was counted for the teams score.  After some really exciting matches, and some amazingly long rallies the scores were counted.

 In the second half the teams were regrouped based on their results and everyone played further matches, some of these even closer than the first half.

Everyone enjoyed a full and exciting afternoon of tennis. Thanks to the adults who umpired (no young people this year!) and to St Albans Tennis Club for supporting the event.
