Manchester High School for Girls

Prep Tennis Stars qualify for National Final

Congratulations to Millie Ryder and Naimah Grant in Year 3, who have qualified for the National Finals of the All Star Tennis Championships.

After their exceptional performances in the regional qualifier at Cheshire Oaks on Sunday 10th November, the girls will compete in the National Finals in London on Sunday 1st December. The girls, who have been friends since they started at MHSG in Reception, both play for Cheshire under 9s and represent the Preparatory Department in competitive fixtures.

Mrs McDonagh, Head of PE in the Preparatory Department said: “Manchester High has always nurtured outstanding young tennis players and Millie and Naimah are already showing a huge amount of talent. They haven’t been playing tennis for very long, so to reach the final of a national competition is a fantastic achievement. They should feel incredibly proud of themselves.”

Millie and Naimah commented: “We’re very excited to go to London and play. We just entered the competition last minute, but we certainly didn’t expect to win a place in the final. It’s a very exciting time and we can’t wait to get take part. If we believe that we can do well, then we will have a chance of winning!”
