It was a summer of tennis for some of College’s most dedicated players and their results reflect their passion and commitment to the sport.
Year 12 student Dylan Heap is the current 16U Boys New Zealand Junior Champion after a stellar performance at the 16U New Zealand Junior Championships, held in Christchurch in January. As well as winning the singles, Dylan also won the doubles title. In addition, he and Year 11 student Will Schneideman were members of the Canterbury 16U team that came third in the 2017 National Junior Teams Events.
Year 10 student Liam Adams came first in the 14U Boys Doubles at the 14U New Zealand Junior Championships, held in Auckland in January. And Liam and fellow Year 10 students Edwin Dargue and Nick Schneideman were in the Canterbury 14U team that won the national team event title at the 2017 National Junior Teams Events.
They all agree that while playing in tournaments can be exhausting, it is always fun and gives them fantastic experience.
