AEGON Team Tennis Report – July 2015
This seasons AEGON Team Tennis Event saw EBAT enter the competition for the very first time. With this being our first year in the event we were a little unsure of what to expect, we had no idea of the standard of tennis from other clubs and venues but none the less we were all very excited to get on court.
The support from the players and parents has been (as always) fantastic! We entered five teams across four different tournaments, with a team in each of the Yellow Ball, Mini-Green and Mini-Orange events, and two teams in the Mini-Red event.
Results are as follows:
Mini-Red (Team A)
Team Captain: Ben
Players: Elliot, Lewis, Gigi and Erin
Fixtures: Haverhill Home Won 12 – 4
Red Lodge Away Won W/O
Wortham Home Won 13 – 3

Overall a great start to Elena’s Academy participating in the AEGON Team Tennis Events. The Academy participated in 17 matches with 13 wins, one draw and only three losses (two of which went to a final match shootout.)
All in all we are very proud of all of the players, they did a fantastic job representing the EBAT and had a great time in the process. A big thank you also to our amazing parents who yet again went above and beyond to help support each event. Home teams are required to provide refreshments and our parents laid on spreads that would have put state banquets to shame! Thank you everyone.
Both the Mini-Red Teams, and the Mini-Orange Teams secured promotion and we are already looking forward to next years events and the challenges they bring.
