Meriden players dominate Tildesley Singles
25 March 2021
Meriden Tennis players are off to a roaring start in the Tildesley Shield Tennis Tournament, with three of the four Singles semi-finalists members of the Meriden squad.
Sienna Leeson, Indiya McLeod and Sarah Rokusek played skilled matches, earning their way to the second-last round. Meriden finalist, Indiya McLeod, who won the Singles event in 2020, received the runner-up title this year after a hard-fought game that ended in a tight 8-5 score.
The Tildesley Tournament, which has been running for 103 years, experienced several milestones in 2021. Heavy rain cancelled many of the outdoor matches and, on Day Two of the tournament, a decision was made to move the Singles matches to Meriden’s indoor tennis courts. Meriden livestreamed the event so that, for the first time in the competition’s history, spectators could support the players and enjoy highly-competitive tennis games remotely.
Congratulations to the Meriden players who competed in the Singles tournament – all the girls progressed to Day Two of the event: Elektra Arseniou, Piper Freeman, Nina Krecklenberg, Samantha Lavers, Sienna Leeson, Indiya McLeod, Sarah Rokusek, Soha Singh, Kaitlin Spanoudakis, Hannah Taleb and Tia Vuk-Luboya.
Tildesley 2021 Doubles matches will be played on Wednesday, 31 March. The School looks forward to supporting our players as they complete this much-loved tournament.
