Queenswood Tennis Success
Phoebe Collins and Alina Schumacher took part in the prestigious Independent Schools East Region Girls Championships held at Queenswood School on 29 June and emerged as the champions.
Pairs play as a team and each round begins with two singles matches. If both players win or both lose then the match is over, but if it is 1-1 then the two players join up as a doubles pair and play a Championship Tie Break to 10 points to decide the winners. Many of the top tennis schools in the region took part and en route to the gold medals, Phoebe and Alina defeated Bedford School, New Hall, The Leys and Queenswood.
This was a marvellous achievement for the Bancroft’s pair and caps off a wonderful tennis season for both girls, who were rewarded with their Senior Colours – Alina for the first time and Phoebe for the third time!
