Match Report
Reading Blue Coat School Boys-U13A vs  Thorngrove School
On: Thursday, 16 May 2019
Venue: Away

So the first Year 7 & 8 fixture of the new tennis season got underway against Thorngrove Prep School on Thursday. This fixture formed part of the AEGON National Competition, that RBC made the Finals of last year!

The match began well, with the 4 singles going the way of RBC, 3 - 1. This meant that we only had to win one of the remaining doubles to take the tie. With some strong performances from all four players, it was Josef Hajek that stood out, winning his doubles with Marios Gialvalis. Josef narrowly lost his singles match 6-4, but then picked himself up to win one of the important doubles rubbers.

Overall, all the boys performed well, with a clinical display from both Alex Panov (Captain) and Oscar Falkentoft (Vice) winning their respective singles matches to 1 and love! They also clinched their doubles to 6 - 0!! RBC came out eventual winners 10 - 2, a commanding victory in the first of our 3 groups matches in this competition. Well done all!!
