Culford School’s under 18 boys have lifted the LTA National Schools Team Tennis Championships for the first time.

The top seeded team of Joe Tyler, Will Davies, Oscar Cutting, Harry Wendelken and Ed Putney defeated Reeds School in the final to lift the Glanville Cup.

Head coach Andrew Richardson was delighted. He said: “To win the most high profile event of the year is an outstanding achievement and undoubtedly the proudest moment in our tennis history.”

It was not just the boys who were on top form as the U18 girls claimed third place in the Aberdare Cup, losing the semi-final narrowly in a tie-break to Cheam High School.

Culford were recently awarded the title of ‘Best Co-Ed UK Tennis School’ by the Lawn Tennis Association and are the only school in Great Britain to have ever had two boys’ and two girls’ teams at the national championships.
