Christ the King College students Rory Allen and Sam Winter represented the school at the U14 ‘Road to Wimbledon’ tennis tournament on Monday (20th May).

The tournament was hosted by Linda Jones at Ventnor Tennis Club.

Rory started off against a very skilful Medina College student who proved a very tough competitor. However, saved by time, Rory was triumphant and won the match 3-2.

Next up was Sam, who was coming back from a recent knee injury. He won his first game 5-1, the knee holding out well!

Both boys then got into the swing of things and went on to win their next 2 matches; Sam with a final tough game in which he came back from 2-1 down to win 3-2.

With both boys winning their rounds it meant they met each other in the final. The final demonstrated some superb tennis from both competitors, one rally consisted of 15+ shots. It was Rory who managed to get past Sam’s strong cross court shots and to win the final, which means he goes through to the next round on the mainland.

Rory and Sam were excellent ambassadors for the College and played well all afternoon.
