On Sunday 22nd April, Marlborough College achieved a number of successes at the National Schoolgirls Fives Championships.

Held at Marlborough, Ibby (NC U6) & Anna Laakkonen (MO U6) retained their doubles titles, in a very tense final against Rugby (15-12).

Congratulations to Ibby who also retained her singles title in what was a very close-run affair.

Kirsten Bell (MO Hu) and Lena Barton (MM Hu) also achieved success, winning the U16 doubles. Unseeded, they upset the number one seeds in the final to win.

Rose Curtis (MO Sh) reached the semi-final stage of the U14 singles whilst Melissa Stewart (MO Sh) won the U14 plate singles, beating Maddy Smith (MM Sh) in the final.

Issey Price (NC Sh) won the plate doubles with her partner from Alleyn’s School. Maddy Smith (MM Sh) and Maddy Hornby (MM Sh) were runners-up in the U14 doubles.
