Fives: A frantic week, during which our 1st pair helped the OS win the EFA Trophy at Eton

Thursday 14 March 2013

On Wednesday 6th March, our girls played a match against Oxford University - the best university team in the country - in which our 1st pair drew against Oxford's 3rd pair. 

On Saturday 9th March, over our coach weekend, some of our day boys played a home match against Highgate with encouraging results.  Overall, the result was 6-2 to Highgate, described by Seb Cooley as the 'national powerhouse of junior Fives' as there are 10 courts in its Junior school.  We always struggle against them at the J14 and J15 level, but do eventually 'reel them in'.

On Sunday 10th March, our top pair - Guy Williams and Henry Blofield - played for the OS team in the EFA Trophy Tournament at Eton, and on Wednesday 13th March our U15s and U14s had an away fixture at Rydal Penrhos, and won 3 out of their 4 matches.

Full reports of all these fixtures are on the Fives news page:
