18U County Cup – Girls Runners up and Boys Winners!

Well done to both the 18U Girls and Boys who competed in the County Cup at Bath this weekend.

The Girls came away runners-up, which is a great result and big congratulations to the Boys team who are the National Champions.

Friday Boys

Yorkshire vs Essex – 7-2

Friday Essex..
“We got off to a fantastic start with Jack and Alex winning at 6&5, both making their debuts in the U18’s team so I was really pleased to see both step up and play some great Tennis. We had fantastic support from all team members and the players really backed each other in the key moments. It’s rare to win all 6 singles matches and I think that showed excellent focus and maturity to stay on it for the whole day with the older players setting a good example.” Elliot Chang (Captain)

 

Friday Girls

Yorkshire vs Essex 6-3

Saturday Boys

Yorkshire – Lancashire 7-2

Saturday Lancashire..
“We always have competitive matches with Lancashire and both teams are obviously very keen to come away with the win. There is that extra bit of pressure as the players know each other well and I thought the boys again showed great character and stayed strong under pressure all day. We managed to take a healthy lead again into the doubles with some great singles performances and stayed hungry the whole day to set us up nicely for Sunday.” Elliot Chang (Captain)

 

Saturday Girls

Yorkshire vs Hampshire & IOW 7-2

Sunday Boys

Yorkshire – Sussex 6-3

Sunday Sussex..
“Beating all three teams over the weekend isn’t easy and we talked going into the match about our personal standards and not being complacent and thinking the job was done. All the boys were a credit to themselves and the county all weekend and I was particularly proud to see them stay calm and fight hard for every rubber on the last day. Alex and Jack both won long 3 set matches to set us up well before Adam and JB produced some great Tennis to keep the momentum with us. At singles 1&2 Johannus and Tom again produced great displays and led the team brilliantly from the top of the order. It was a pleasure to captain the boys and retain the national title for the first time and also thank you to Pete Ashley who was superb as Vice captain all weekend.” Elliot Chang (Captain)
