Congratulations to Woking's U12 Girls team, winners of the Premier Division II 2016.
Captain - Mark Wisdom
With Woking and Letchworth having secured convincing wins against both Hackney and The Connaught Club in the Premier Division (Grade 3 event), the U12 Woking girls took to the court on 5th June in the blistering heat to take on Letchworth.
The singles were closely fought with Lottie as player number 1 and Georgie in position 3 both putting up a valiant fight against their opponents but not quite able to see their way to victory, and Nora and Bella both securing convincing wins to make it 2:2.
The doubles saw some fantastic play by all the girls who demonstrated a real variety of shots and skill sets. Equally importantly they showed great sportsmanship and supported each other physically and mentally thoughout both matches. End result for the doubles 1:1 and an overall rubber score of 3:3.
So it was time for a penalty shoot out decider....
At this point the tide was turning in favour of Djokovic v Murray. So we were told....!!
Back to the important tennis...
Lottie and Georgiana bravely stepped out to play against Catherine Hodge and Avani Johal and after what felt like a lifetime of close line calls, fantastic serving and volleying by Georgiana and
fearless bold play by Lottie....very happy to declare Woking U12 Premier Division Girls winners of this event!
Well done all four girls.
And a massive thank you to Mark Wisdom for his dedication and care.
