    Brighton College pupils are UAE tennis stars!

    Younes Jenkins (Year 7) finished the Tennis Season, qualifying for the prestigious Adidas Junior Masters at Clarke Francis (Aviation Club) in Dubai. This is where only the top 16 ranked players in the UAE are allowed to compete.
    Unfortunately, due to Younes fracturing his hand at school, he was unable to compete. However, he fulfilled his ambition for the 2015-16 UAE season by getting a Top 10 ranking! This is a fantastic achievement considering the talent in the international junior field that competes at the Clarke Francis Academy.
    Congratulations to Maria Karachaliou (Year 7), who has once again gained some outstanding achievements in tennis.


    On Friday 5th May, Maria won the PSS Development Tournament in Abu Dhabi, which is a national competition. Her final lasted 2 hours and 56 minutes and the results were even more admirable given that the girls were playing in 40°C heat for the whole 3 hours!
    Maria will now prepare to compete in the Greek championship competition, in her age category and will spend part of her summer vacation at a tennis camp in Miami, USA.
