Eastbourne College, Bede’s and Lancing all win at the Sussex County School Tennis Championship

It was a fantastic turnout for the first of the Sussex County School Tennis Championships after a year of nothing! With strict protocols in place for safe play, fourteen schools competed on Tuesday 27th April in the Under 15 Event. The sun shone and the weather was kindly warm as the teams battled over the afternoon, with outstanding rallies and fiercely fought points. Lancing College were the winners in the boy’s event beating Cardinal Newman in the final. Eastbourne College beat Brighton College in the girl’s event.

Thursday 29th April saw the turn of the Under 18 age group. Once again fourteen schools battled for the trophy, this time the weather was not warm at all! With very closely fought matches, the winners for this afternoon were Bede’s who beat Eastbourne College in the boy’s event and Eastbourne College, who beat Bede’s in the girl’s event.
