Rangi Ruru’s senior tennis team has capped off a fantastic season with a fifth place at the National Secondary School’s competition in Auckland.

The team that won the Christchurch girls’ qualifying tournament and placed second at the South Island Secondary School’s tournament fought hard to achieve this impressive result.

Tennis convenor, Anne Bissland said Rangi Ruru hadn’t had a tennis team at the national competition since 2015 so this is a satisfying result after a busy season.

“The team spirit and hard work paid off and the girls only narrowly missed out on making the top four after some close games earlier in the competition,” said Mrs Bissland.

“This is a young team with a lot of potential and we look forward to seeing watching their progress over the next few years,” added Mrs Bissland.
