Doubles win at National Schools’ Fives Championships

This year’s National Schools’ Fives tournament was played over four days with three age groups; nineteen schools were represented, with over 110 competitors in all.

There was a very high standard of play, of sportsmanship and genial enjoyment of the occasion.

In the doubles St Paul’s I (Harveer Mahajan & Archie Taylor) came through as champions, defeating the top-seeded Edinburgh pair in a three-game semi and the tough Winchester pair in the final 11-6, 11-8.

Matthew Cheveley was runner up in the Colts singles having played superbly and Jamie Abbott (U15) was runner-up in the Colts singles plate.

In a tense and engaging game, Teddy Monro-Davies came very close to winning the U14 singles final (11-9 down in the deciding game) and the U14 doubles (11-7 in the third) with Jack Griffiths, with the SPS pairs II and III making it to the semi-finals in the doubles.

Well done to all the boys who took part. The Mappin Cup is ready to take a prominent place in the Montgomery room after the Easter break!
