Girls 11U County Cup at Boston
• 2 MINUTE READ
U11 Girl’s County Cup started off with some tough news when finding out one of players had to isolate due to covid.
With others also in a similar boat we had to turn up with a team of three for the weekend. The girls took this in their stride and embraced the challenge ahead. This year we headed to Boston and the team consisted of…
- Isabella Smillie
- Bethan Wright
- Grace Hayden
Due to the weather forecast on the Sunday all fixtures were played and completed on the Saturday each match being the best of one fast 4 set.
With the girls warmed up and ready to go play got underway starting with Cambridgeshire. We had some tough matches against Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Hertfordshire losing 5-1, 6-0 6-0 respectively. Despite these losses the girls remained in high spirits and kept wanting to get back on court to improve. Couldn’t fault their enthusiasm to play and improve as well as their team spirit throughout the day. They had one nail-biting match against Bedfordshire with a lot of close matches but the girls managed to take them to a shootout. Despite Bethan and Grace playing and winning an epic match shoot out (10-8) unfortunately went down as non-void as we didn’t have a ligament second player from the second pair doubles, but for us and the girls it was a great win!
The girls all had fun and enjoyed their time at Boston. With the girls knowing what they had to / wanted to work on they couldn’t wait to get back on court with their coaches and the county programme to get practising and prepare for their upcoming matches as well as wanting to come back stronger and better for next year’s county cup. Well done girls!
