On Saturday 9th December our Under 12 team travelled up to Redbridge Sport complex in Essex to play a “Double Header” against teams from Kent and Berkshire. This was the first time our young team had experienced two matches on the same day, so taking a slightly larger team meant we could rest players during the day.
Our first match in the morning was against Kent, and a clean sweep of the mixed doubles followed by good performances in the Boys singles meant we led 7-1. Although there was a mini revival from Kent, Sussex went on to win comfortable 13-7.
Our afternoon match was a new experience for many of our team who came up against a very strong and experienced team from Berkshire. Some extremely good performances from both our singles and doubles play however we couldn’t stop Berkshire taking a clean sweep of all matches 0-20.
A very long day for all and very well done to our team. Thank you to parents for their support on the day.
U12 Girls – Amelia Roberts, Anna Robinson, Alice Fletcher, Meili Nightingale, Charlotte Kay
