DAME Bradbury’s under-9 tennis team were crowned county champions for the second year running when they won at the Essex Summer Games in Basildon last week.

Having previously won the Uttlesford School Sports Partnership tennis tournament at the County High School, they were representing Uttlesford at the Essex Games where they competed against 13 other district winners.

At the group stage they won five and lost just one of their games to finish top of their group. The team then beat St Nicholas School from Harlow in the semi-final and Bournes Green School from Southend in the tense grand final.

Dame Bradbury’s head of sport, Nick Evans, said: “It was an amazing effort by the whole team who played better and better as the day went on. They maintained their concentration throughout a very long day of tennis and thoroughly deserved their win.”
