Notts County teams are sponsored by Brenntag

Nottinghamshire's first County Cup of the summer was the 12U event where the boys, in Oxford, and the girls, at home in Caunton, played against Warwickshire on the first day, followed by Buckinghamshire and finally Oxfordshire.

The boys' team was made up of Thomas Pritchard, Oliver Melady, Joe Bowie and Seb Schmidt for day 1. The boys were not successful in terms of results, losing all matches against Warwickshire and half a match against Buckinghamshire, but there was a real success to be seen in their attitude and teamwork. After a tough start, the boys all pulled together showing their grit and resilience whilst working as a team, prompting an opposition parent to praise their spirit and togetherness.

For day 2, the county captains decided to rotate the players at 3 and 4 to give more a chance to represent the county and so Connor Young and Evan Lam came in for Joe and Seb. Buckinghamshire proved too strong in the other half of our fixture, but the boys showed excellent resilience to bounce back against Oxfordshire in our last match. After winning 3 singles matches to move 3-1 up in the fixture, Connor and Evan fought excellently after losing the first set of their doubles to square it at a set all - knowing that a match tie break win would secure the tie for Notts. After another comeback from 3-7 in the match tie break to 7-7 they just fell short but gave a great account of themselves. Needing to win the final match, Thomas and Oliver powered through to take the victory for Notts so we finished 3rd in the group overall.

A great weekend for the team to gel together and find out more information on their own tennis paths, we look forward to seeing their development for the future.

Captain: Andy Higham
