KEARSNEY College hosted the 20th annual top schools tennis festival at the weekend, with Grey College the victors after pulling through 5-4 against Paul Roos in the final.

Pretoria Boys’ High came out on top against Affies to finish third, while Kearsney beat fellow KZN participants Clifton College for fifth spot.

The three-day invitation festival was played in perfect weather and provided the ideal opportunity for some of the country’s best racket wielders to display their talent.

Kearsney, represented by Brad Porteous, Matthew Bentley, Mihir Singh, Kyle Koening, Kade Mindry, Brendan Bosman and Cuan Crocker, gave a good account of themselves against sides traditionally know for producing strong players.

At the end of the day, tennis was the winner and the experience was worth its weight in gold.

Kearsney thanked sponsors for their continued support of the tournament and promoting tennis at school level
