Paul Roos Serves An Ace...Again

Paul Roos proved once again their total dominance of schools tennis in South Africa by winning the 16th annual Invitation Festival held at Kearsney College over the weekend.



It is the eighth time in 10 years that Paul Roos from Stellenbosch has won the Festival. Their clinical domination left the remaining teams to play for second position. In February this year they also gave a superb display of skill and strength, to win their own tennis festival.

Kearsney’s three-day tournament ended yesterday (Sunday) with another strong tennis outfit, Affies (Afrikaanse Seuns Hoerskool in Pretoria), coming second. In the final, Paul Roos thumped Affies and did not drop a match in this tie.

Earlier in the semi-finals, Paul Roos easily beat St Stithians from Johannesburg and the Affies boys played above themselves to beat Glenwood by 5 matches to 1.

The remaining positions were taken by Clifton, Kearsney, Grey College (Bloemfontein) and Selborne College (East London).

At the final prize giving Festival organiser Anthony Willows thanked Sportsmans Warehouse and Head for their generosity with sponsorship and prizes – most of which will find their way to Stellenbosch!
