Berkshire 18U Boys County Cup Report

Our Under 18 boys team went to Redbridge to compete in Division 5 of the LTA County Cup in February, looking to bounce back after relegation last year. We started against Cornwall on Day 1 and it was all over before the doubles had started. We won all 6 singles rubbers, including 5 in straight sets. This form continued into the doubles, after two more wins, a match tiebreak was all that stood between us and a comprehensive 9-0 victory. Nicholas and Krishan dominated the tiebreak 10-3 and we had laid down a strong marker to the other teams.

It would be hard to follow that up on Day 2 against Northamptonshire, but we weren't far off! Oliver, Callum, Nicholas and Ethan all won their second game in a row, and Daniel G won his first singles rubber of the weekend. Despite dropping one rubber (in a tight third set!) we had sealed the win again before the doubles. Daniel N made his doubles debut and helped get a clean sweep of all 3 rubbers, leaving us one win away from promotion.

And the boys left no doubt about who the champions of group 5 were, with another 9-0 win against Bedfordshire! Incredibly they won 26 out of 27 rubbers over the weekend and back to back promotions will be a real possibility next year. Congratulations to the team and thanks to the captains and parents for your support!!

 Team: Oliver, Callum, Krishan, Josh, Nicholas, Ethan, Daniel G, Daniel N
