Well done to our Boys and Girls Tennis teams this season. They have been ably led by Ms Rai for the Girls and Mr Loggie for the Boys. The teams have been competing since November in a really protracted season, with intensive training every Friday recently. The boy’s team has battled through close-run fixtures against a range of opposition, with a notable win against ESF rivals South Island School. The girl’s have also been magnificent – they completed a grand slam of wins against SIS. Great job to everyone on the teams.
Congratulations to the Girls’ and Boys’ Senior Badminton teams this season. The boy’s finished top of their group whilst the girl’s were runners-up in their respective groups during the preliminary rounds. Though the teams could not progress, they made it to the quarter-finals. These positive results will undoubtedly support the team next season. Thank you again to their excellent and dedicated coaches, Ms Lee and Ms Singh.
A massive congratulations to all the Typhoons athletes! We look forward to having more exciting news next year.
