Blessed with sunshine after what has been a few unseasonably cold weeks the Bradfield College Clay Courts provided a great location for this year’s ‘Give It Your Max’ Mixed Doubles Tennis Tournament organised by the Bradfield Society.

It was a friendly morning of short matches with everyone playing 5 games in a Round-Robin format against all pairs in the Group, followed by a Semi-Final and a Final.

Pairs playing included Old Bradfieldians (Sam Berry (E 06-11), Christian Ward (F 15-17), parents and pupils and even youngsters who play at the Bradfield College Tennis Centre.

The runners up this year were Bradfieldian Stephen Bale (B 84-89) and his wife Suada joining us for the second time in the tournament and the winners were Noah (son of Bradfieldian Anna Moss-Gibbons (I 95-97)) and his partner Veronika. Both Noah and Veronika play regularly and are coached at the Bradfield College Tennis Centre and at only 12 years of age are very talented players. Prizes at the end of the tournament were presented by Michael Stotesbury (E 56-60) who set up the charity in memory of his son Max.

Thank you to everyone who signed up and played and who donated to Give It Your Max (GIYM). We raised £345 for the charity. Thanks also to everyone who brought along their old tennis rackets which will be refurbished by the charity to shared with disadvantaged children who can use them to learn to play tennis. Any additional rackets can be given to the Bradfield Tennis Centre at any time for collection by GIYM.
