HISTORIC FIXTURE ENTERS ITS 53rd YEAR
Result: IC of GB 11 – 2 Bradfield College
Event Date: Monday 12th May 2014
Bradfield College, founded in 1850 by Thomas Stevens, played host to the 53rd annual fixture against the IC of GB on a sunny but windy afternoon in the beautiful village of Bradfield in Berkshire. One of the country’s leading co-educational independent schools, Bradfield College enjoys a well-established reputation for its tennis programme. Despite an 11 – 2 win for the experienced IC of GB, the majority of matches were closely contested and many of the Bradfield team showed considerable promise – especially Fred Grant and the Slater twins (Matthew and Daniel).
The match was greatly enjoyed by both teams and was followed by a splendid dinner in college.
Thanks to Tony Billington, and Chris and Jen Gorringe for their support and Bradfield College for being such wonderful hosts.
