THE EIGHT BEST players will battle in the semi-finals of the Cave Shepherd/Berger Royale/A One Supermarkets National Primary Schools Road Tennis Individual Championships.

Last Friday, the overcast and at times rainy conditions could not cool the heat at the Rubis Courts, Brighton, when the action served off. For the first time, there is a stand alone female component in the tournament, now in its third year.

West Terrace Primary School showed their growing road tennis prowess by qualifying three girls to the semi-finals with the other slot going to Ranesha Stewart of St Jude’s, who gained a bye from the quarter-finals.

The Holford sisters will clash in next Friday’s semis after Jahzara defeated Shelanie Augustin of Sharon Primary 21-12, and younger sibling Solange followed the cue to beat Abilla Clarke of St Stephen’s 21-12. (KB)
