School Tennis Star Shines for Great Britain

20th January 2023: Game, set and match….. Brentwood School tennis ace, Edie Griffiths, served up a masterclass following selection for the Great Britain team in an international tennis fixture against the USA.

The 13-year-old rising star travelled to Manchester to compete in a fixture which involved a mix of singles and doubles matches contested across three days by some of the best juniors in the world.

Proud Brentwood School Tennis Coach, Mark Simpson-Crick, said: “It was an incredible experience for the GB boys and girls who were able to challenge the best players of their age groups from America in a really exciting contest. Edie performed exceptionally well and managed to win two out of the three singles matches that she played.

“Edie is doing so well on the international stage and we are extremely proud of her achievements.”

An exciting year lies ahead for the Year 9 student as she will join up with the GB Team again next month for the U14 Winter Cup Qualifying Round. Edie and the team will travel to Izmir in Turkey where they aim to progress through the qualifying rounds to secure a spot in the Winter Cup Finals, which are being held in the Czech Republic. 

We wish Edie and the GB Team the best of luck and will be cheering them all on from afar.
