After facing a tough Medbury team last Monday where Grammar battled and despite their best efforts, only William managing to win his singles. That challenge certainly prepared the team how to persevere and they prevailed against the visiting Waihi School. A close top doubles match saw Grammar take it out 9 – 5. Unfortunately for Waihi, Grammar was warming to its task and the whole team won the remaining doubles and singles.
The top four of Henri, Johnny, William and James only conceded 3 games in total. The next four consisting of Jack, Isaac, Isabella and Zoe then went one better conceding only two games. Waihi had some close games but were unable to win the final point. The matches were played with good sportsmanship and fair play. A tribute to the players and to the legacy that is part of the biannual exchange which started last century.
The players from both schools then played doubles partnering with their opponent to determine the King of the court. True to form it went to the top doubles pair of Henri and Tom ( Waihi).
The overall exchange result was a change around from the Medbury exchange where the cricket managed the only win while against Waihi it was the tennis.
