Tennis

Congratulations must go to Daisy Phillips, Alice O’Hagan, Isabella Tarrant, Emma Stewart, Erin Saunders and Rebecca Haynes for competing in the U18 Surrey League Tennis Finals where they finished 3rd overall as a team.

The U13 tennis team played Tormead after school on Thursday, losing 49 games to 27. The doubles matches went well but all the singles matches were unfortunately lost in closely fought games. The U14 team also played a friendly against Tormead and lost with a final score of 34 games to 13.

On Wednesday the Prior’s Field gymnasts headed to Sutton High to compete in the annual novice floor and vault competition. They were given a set floor piece to perform and a vault of their choice. Second formers Megan Nicholas, Darcy Crittall, Natasha Brookes and First Formers Maddie Morgan, Holly Rose Harland Fairweather and Issie Francks all showed good control and skill in both disciplines. Holly Rose finished in 4th position on the floor and Issie Franks finished in 7th on the vault. Well done to all the girls!
