At the start of Lent Term, Wellington hosted the Real Tennis National Schools Girls Championship.
Cesca Sweet dominated the competition from start to finish and emerged with an incredible four national titles to her name. In the Under 15 competition, she took the Singles title, winning 6-2 in the final against a player from Oaklands. She then joined forces with Honor Hue-Williams and, together, they triumphed in the Doubles final.
In the Under 19 Doubles competition, Cesca teamed up with Honor Cockroft and the pair were victorious in an all-Wellington final against Arabella Spraggs and Daisy Bristowe. Cesca finished the day with a ‘nail-biting’ Singles final against the defending champion from Cheltenham Ladies’ College. Showing great determination and tenacity, Cesca won the match 8-7, taking her trophy-tally to four.
This was a great day for the Wellington Real Tennis players and an outstanding achievement for Cesca, winning all four national titles – a feat that is unlikely to be equalled for many years to come.Back to all news
