Keegan was the team’s number 1 seed player and Mohammed was seeded third. Each player had to play 8 single matches and 8 double matches over the course of the weekend. These matches were played at Kershaw Park Tennis Club and Epworth School.
The competition was of a very high standard and both boys gave of their best and played very good matches. Although the weather was extremely hot in Pietermaritzburg, this did not set these two court fighters back. They enjoyed the tennis and had an overall good experience. They made new tennis friends from different schools and they are both looking forward to going back even stronger next year!
