Casper and Jasper made Deal Parochial proud on Saturday 13th November when they played with such composure and exemplary sportsmanship in the 8U Boys’ Kent League Tennis Event at the Bromley Tennis Centre. We were the only school to participate, and the only team from East Kent; the other 12 teams all came from tennis clubs in North and West Kent.
The standard of the tennis throughout the afternoon and early evening was excellent. Casper and Jasper played in many amazing, close matches (both singles and doubles) against tennis clubs from Old Wilsonians, Shooters Hill, Gravesham and Sevenoaks. Each of their fixtures finished with a 2-1 score line; Casper and Jasper won against Gravesham B and Sevenoaks C teams, but lost to Shooters Hill and Old Wilsonians, and so finished third in their division.
Well done boys on your excellent performances!
Also, thank you to your parents for their fantastic support in getting you up to Bromley for this event.
