We were delighted to hear that Year 3 pupil, E Julio was selected to represent Kent County 8U tennis team this past weekend at the annual South East inter-county team event held at the Bromley Tennis Centre. The tournament was between Kent, Middlesex, Surrey and Sussex and she was one of four girls selected to represent Kent.
Mr Julio told us “In a very close tournament Kent and Middlesex were tied for the trophy after all matches were played and the two teams then played in a best of 5 playoff. Unfortunately Kent lost the playoff 2 matches to 3 but the team played exceptionally well to collect 2nd place.” E Julio won 2 of her 3 single matches and 2 of her 4 double matches.
Having started to play tennis in Reception, when her parents took her for her first lessons, she started training as part of the Kent Tennis 8U Training Squad in April this year. We’re looking forward to following her progress!
