Notts County Teams are sponsored by Brenntag
Team: Eleanor Richardson, Sithandazile (Star) Mkhweli , Clementine Rennoldson, Evie Pritchard, Chloe Hodes.
The 9U County Cup was played on Saturday 15th May at Boston Tennis Club. For many years this has been a boys and girls team event with mixed doubles, but this year the format was changed in the last 48 hours, due to social distancing and the number of people allowed on site. This year the event was outside played with a Fast 4 format, which meant tennis scoring, which the players were not used to.
The first round was against Leicestershire, Evie and Clemmie were the first on, Captains were allowed on court to help with the new scoring. They both played well, overcame their nerves to win their matches. Star also had a good win, sadly Eleanor had a tough match and lost hers. The girls enjoyed the doubles, playing very well and winning both.
Overall score: 5-1 to Notts
The second round was against Northamptonshire , Chloe played well at number 4, having a good win 4-1, Eleanor, Clemmie and Evie all had tough matches against stronger, more experienced girls, all losing their matches. Our girls coped well with this higher standard, all coming off with a smile. Star and Chloe had a great win in the doubles, with Clemmie and Eleanor losing theirs.
Overall score: 4-2 to Northants
It was a long day, the girls went back on court at 5.30pm to play Lincolnshire. Evie and Clemmie were first on, Evie played well and confidently to win 4-2, Clemmie had a close match playing a tie break at 3-3, which she sadly lost 3-7. Both Star and Eleanor played well, but lost in close matches. The girls were up for the doubles, Star and Chloe had a tight match that went to a tie break, they went 5-0 up, then slipped back to 5-5, held their nerve and concentration to win 7-5. Eleanor and Clemmie both played well, but lost in another tight match.
Overall score: 4-2 Lincs
This was the first County Cup the girls had played, there was great team spirt, all supporting each other, loving their t-shirts and hoodies courtesy of our Sponsors, Brenntag!
My thanks to the parents for their support on such a grim cold, damp day.
