26 April 2015: AEGON Team Tennis Tournament

Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis AEGON Team Tennis Report Sunday 26 April 2015 Sunday 26 April 2015 marked the first day in the AEGON Team tennis tournament for Elena’s Academy. The Academy is always keen to support any form of tennis and we see team tennis as a vital component to our players development. Mini-Green First up today were our Mini-Green team as they travelled the short distance across Ipswich for a local fixture v Holbrook. Team:

Aaron Garwood (Captain)

Eleanor Garwood

Will Knight

Carrie Savill

Jessie Vecchiet

Excellent performances all round with EBAT picking up 3 from 4 singles rubbers. The players managed to carry that form into the doubles with Jessie & Eleanor, William & Carrie both picking up comprehensive victories. Great start to the team tennis event. Final Score:               EBAT:                        5 Holbrook:             1 Next up are A&M tennis (Home) on Sat 9 May 15. 11182224_827531380656364_4733070050721418290_n Mini-Green: Will, Jesse, Carrie and Eleanor. Mini-Red ‘A’ We have been fortunate enough to enter two teams in the Mini-Red tournament. First up today (and again at Holbrook) were our Mini-Red ‘A’ Team. Team:

Jamie Friend (Captain)

Joe Fortnum-Adams

Morgan Hadley

Jasper Mardell

Bliss Wilson

What I really like about this format is that all the players get to play each other. Some great battles today with all the players on both teams working hard on every point. A special mention to Bliss Wilson who has had a great couple of weeks. Not only did Bliss push a top Suffolk player all the way last weekend – she managed to win all 4 of her matches today. Final Score:               EBAT:                        12 Holbrook:             4 Next up are Red Lodge (Away) on Sat 9 May 15. 11046274_827531337323035_2977576211031374285_n Mini-Red 'A': Bliss, Joe, Jasper and Morgan. Mini-Red ‘B’ Our Mini-Red ‘B’ team were also in action today as they hosted Haverhill. Again, 16 rubbers to play for with all the players rotating round to play each other. Team:

Ben Coupe (Captain)

Gigi Gebhard

Lewis Hind

Elliot Thomas 

Some great tennis played by both sides, but unfortunately for Haverhill, Bally’s players were just too strong today. Final Score:              EBAT:                        12 Haverhill:             4 Next up are A&M Tennis (Away) on Sat 9 May 15. 11182048_827644173978418_399610555004760669_n Mini-Red 'B': Gigi, Elliott, Lewis and Erin.
