A team of Year 8 and Year 10 boys and girls from Sidmouth College took part in the East Devon Tennis Tournament yesterday at King’s School.

It was a lovely hot day that saw some great tennis and fantastic success for Sidmouth.

The boys were represented by Oli Turton, Sam Sparks, Rory Morgan and James Dodge for the U13s and Jack Salvidge, Sam Marriott and Tom Robins for the U15s.

In the older group stages both Marriott and Salvidge progressed, but Robins missed out on the smallest of margins, by games difference.

Marriott and Salvidge drew each other in the in the last four with Salvidge winning 3-1.
