Summers Season At Mill Hill
Andrew Rennie reports:
19/09/18: Last Sunday saw the third annual Summers Cup Fives tournament where an Old Millhillian plays alongside a current pupil of the school.
This year we had ten pairs competing for the trophy. With some very high quality group stage matches, progression to the semi-finals was not guaranteed until the final match had finished and went down to points scored. The group stages and semi-finals were made up of timed matches with the final being one full game. The first semi-final was between S.Tailor & R.Ebner-Statt vs V.Bhimjiyani & J.Clifford which was a very close game but eventually won by the former 11-9. The second semi-final was between L.Vanhaesebroeck & J.Lewis vs J.Hutcheson & J.Turner. J.Turner was unable to continue with his aim of being the first pupil to win the cup twice, losing 10-3 in a very high standard match. L.Vanhaesebroeck & J.Lewis went one stage further and put two new names on the trophy winning the final 12-6.
