Meriden secures sixth consecutive Tildesley Tennis victory

19 March 2015

Meriden has defended its title as the champion of Tildesley Tennis for the sixth consecutive year.

Meriden’s players dominated the two-day tournament claiming victory in the singles and doubles competitions.  Stunning performances by the Meriden players earned them the unprecedented position of securing all places in the singles and doubles grand finals.

Meriden's Linda Huang matched it out with Michaela Haet to take the singles title 8 - 5.

The closely contested doubles finals saw Alisa Jeregui and Claudia Furdi narrowly defeat Amne Ghamraoui and Shubhika Dubey.

Twenty-five teams competed in this year’s Tildesley event on 18 and 19 March at Pennant Hills Park.

Established in 1918, Tildesley Tennis is the oldest sport competition in independent girls’ schools.  The tournament has provided a training ground for many of Australia’s former tennis champions including Monique Adamzak, Michelle Jaggard, Bryanne Stewart, Bree Calderwood, Sophie Ferguson and Nicole Kriz.

Meriden's victory comes hot on the heels of the school's stunning success in the 2015 ISF World Schools Tennis Championship in Qatar, where the team took the top prize after competing against some of the best young tennis players in the world.
