Result: IC of GB won 14-7 against Bradfield College

Event Date: 18th October 2021

After missing the whole of last season it was a real pleasure to be back on court at Bradfield to play in the only fixture the IC plays against a school to play for the Henry Billington trophy.

The standard of play in this match improves every year as the tennis programme at Bradfield continues to develop and it was great to have such a close match with the ladies drawing 4 -4 in sets, and the IC men coming through 10-3  in sets (3 of which were won on tie breaks) . This meant the IC retained the Henry Billington trophy with the combined score of 14-7. The school were excellent hosts and both teams and special guests Fayleen and Tony Billington enjoyed a delicious post-match dinner in the Wardens room, a far cry from the school dinners we all remembered.
