London Youth Games - Tennis Finals 2018
GLEBE STUDENTS WIN SILVER FOR BROMLEY IN THE LYG!
Glebe students yet again won the honour of representing Bromley in the LYG Finals at the Westways Sports Centre on Wednesday 20th June. The standard of tennis keeps improving year on year and the six squad members were going to have to fight hard for any success. Junior, Hamza, Flora, Gemma, Becky and Harry took to the courts in the early rounds and impressively won every match. The results were gathered and there was no surprise that we got into the semi-finals where we faced Haringey. The ever improving Glebe team managed to win every game in the semi-final rounds and were convincingly through to the final.
In the final we faced the two time defending champions Newham who once again brought an incredibly strong squad of players. The final matches produced the best tennis ever seen at the Championships and the result also reflected how close the two teams were. Newham, yet again took the Gold by a very frustrating one point! A mixture of disappointment and joy was how the finals ended for the Glebe team but this has still been the most successful tennis squad Bromley has every had in the Championships. Finishing second out of all the London Boroughs is an incredible achievement. Well done to all the team for an amazing day!!!
