There have been two competitions in the past couple of weeks. A wonderfully friendly competition with a relaxed atmosphere against Manor House. The girls performed well and really enjoyed themselves. We have also taken part in the Waverley Trials at Charterhouse and are currently awaiting any selection results.
First Formers are really getting into the swing of cricket and thoroughly enjoyed having a full afternoon of cricket at Bramley Cricket Club last week Wednesday. Mini games took place on the outfield whilst we were very fortunate to have Marcus, one of the clubs players, lead a bowling session in the nets. Last Saturday the girls put this training into practise against Epsom College. Although the results didn’t quite go our way, they have made tremendous improvement in understanding the game as well as with their individual skills.
A manic morning of rounders took place last Saturday with the U13’s and U14’s playing against Epsom College and Gordon’s. All matches against Gordon’s finished with a win and there were mixed results against Epsom College.
Several different tennis competitions are on the go at the moment with lots of players involved. Girls have enjoyed taking part in friendly matches against Tormead and Charterhouse where, overall, we won and lost respectively. The first round of the Surrey League competition took place against St Teresa School and the team are now looking forward to the next round of matches. In the Aegon Competition the U15/U14 team took on Claremont where some fantastic rallies were played and we came away with a very convincing win. In the Aberdare Cup, PF A were drawn to play against PF B. PF A won and are now through to the finals where we are still waiting to find out who our opposition will be.
