Pupils from an independent school near Bury St Edmunds were victorious in a county tennis final last month.

Four Year 3 pupils from Culford School won the county school tennis title held at Framlingham Prep School, having qualified for the finals following their win in the group stage earlier in June.

The Year 3 boys team consisted of Riley Cozens, George Hansgate, Samuel Chamberlain and Lewis Chambers.

The team beat Framlingham B team in their semi-final 6-0, before defeating Old Buckenham Hall 4-2 in a closely fought match in the final to be crowned champions in the county.

David Hall, head of school who is also director of tennis at Culford School, said: “It was very encouraging to see the pupils play so well and put into practice the preparation in coaching sessions.

“Well done to the whole team.”
