Fettes College, Edinburgh
The Scottish Schools tournament season opened with the Scottish Schools U18 Singles Championship, in which Sam P from Merchiston Castle beat Toby C of Fettes College in the final to win the Boyd Cup. Lucas F (Merchiston) beat Jack H (Fettes) to win the McKeown Plate.
Richie Murby reports: Although it has only existed since 2017, the Scottish Schools Singles Championship is already a staple in the schools fives calendar north of the border. For some it acts as preparation for the UK National Schools, while for others it’s an opportunity to shed doubles partners for a while and enjoy some competitive singles matches.
