  • The Road to Wimbledon ends here...
    20th May 2014

    Over the past two weeks, 30 boys and 6 girls from years 7 to 9 have been battling it out the for the right to qualify for the County Finals stage of this year’s HSBC Road to Wimbledon Tennis tournament. This is the biggest 14 & Under event in Britain, with kids from clubs, parks and schools from all over the country competing for the right to play at Wimbledon in August. Now, with 46 matches down and 3 to go, the boys and girls events are reaching their climax. In the Boys event number 1 seed & defending champ Abdi Hassan has reached Thursday night’s final, where he faces Joy Hoque from year 7. Joy has taken out three seeds on his route to the final. Can the champ come through, or will the new kid on the block knock him off his throne? In the Girls Round Robin event, things are getting complex! Sydney Merritt and Teresa Da Silva are joint top with four wins each. However, Teresa’s last match against Vilija Burbuleviciute is evenly poised at 5 games all. If Vilija beats Teresa, and then wins her last match, Vilija, Teresa & Sydney will all have won four matches, which means qualification will be determined by percentage of games won. If Teresa beats Vilija, Teresa wins out right, with Sydney finishing as runner up. It’s been a fantastic event, with some amazing Tennis being played and I’m really proud of all the players. If you can make it down tomorrow, either at Lunch to watch the end of Vilija vs Teresa, or after school to watch the boys final, please come along and show your support! Pictures and final results to follow on Friday 23rd May Read More

    Greenhouse Team Tennis Mid-Season Update
    13th May 2014

    We’re now halfway through the Team Tennis season, and while results have been a mixed bag, the teams have had the privilege of visiting some amazing private schools and Tennis clubs to play their matches. Highlights of the season so far: • Year 10 boys playing their away match vs Coopers Coborn at Virgin Active Clearview in Brentwood, Essex and enjoying post-match (soft) drinks on the patio area overlooking the outdoor pool. • Strawberries and Cream, and afternoon tea at Bancrofts School in Ilford. • Carlos Torres and Joy Hoque winning their doubles match against Bancrofts, with Carlos being a very late call up to the team due a last minute drop out. • Sydney Merritt becoming the first girl at Cumberland to win a singles match in Team Tennis, beating her opponent from Brentwood School 6-4 • The year 8 girls team of Vilija Burbuleviciute, Teresa Da Silva, Sydney Merritt and Hazel Rahman winning their first ever match 12-0 against St. Pauls Way. • Tinashe Balayi and Elonas Voliekevicius coming back from 4-1 down to win their doubles match 6-4 vs St. Pauls Way year 10 boys team.

  • Congratulations to Abdi Hassan Year 8

    Congratulations to Abdi Hassan Year 8
    30th April 2014

    During the Easter Holidays, Abdi Hassan from Year 8 took part in an LTA Grade 5 Tennis Tournament at Shooters Hill. I am thrilled to say that he won the tournament, winning four matches on the day. As a result of his wins, his rating will improve from 10.1 to 9.2 (ratings are the LTA’s guide to players ability, with the lower the rating, the better the player. For comparison, Andy Murray is a 1.1). Well done Abdi! Mr Kruse Greenhouse Tennis Coach Read More
