Somerset competed at the Future Stars Tennis event 29 August, this time held at Queens Park Tennis Centre. We had students competing from Prep all the way to Year 5. We fielded some of the youngest players, who really shined throughout the day!

In the Red Ball part of the competition, we had the youngest side among all the other clubs and out of the six teams that competed throughout the day, Somerset placed third which is an amazing result. Special mention goes to prep students Ava Johnson, Dylan Kingston, and Taya Liu, who were the youngest competitors on the day, also getting their first match wins at this event. Taya Liu also received an award for showing great sportsmanship. Well done to our students, and all other red ball competitors!

In the Green Ball section, Evie Wilson and Ailin Zhao competed for Somerset in what was the toughest Green Ball division so far of the season. Finishing fifth overall, the girls displayed some awesome doubles skills and solid teamwork, even though this was their first event together. Another great result for somerset tennis!

Our Orange ballers on Sunday played a flawless day of tennis, winning every single rubber against the other clubs to take out first place! This is our best result so far in the Orange Ball section of the day. All students showed great sportsmanship throughout the day, with Year 3 student Benedict Thompson, receiving four out of the four votes for sportsperson of the day. Again, well done to all out of our orange ball students!

Overall, it was a great day of tennis, with Somerset students producing some amazing results, and we hope to keep producing some more great results at upcoming tournaments!
