Quorn Family Tennis Cup

On Sunday 2 July, Dauntsey’s hosted the Quorn Family Tennis Cup. This competition provides families with the opportunity to play tennis in an informal, fun competition run by a local venue with 8 Quorn Cups being played in the South West on the same day.

The competition was well attended with 16 pairs playing a total of five games each with an excellent representation from Dauntsey’s pupils and parents.

The final was played between Mr Watts and his daughter Bea against Mr Hughes and his son Archie.

Archie and his father will progress to the Regional Round. Congratulations to them both.
