This victory means that Culford ends the year ranked by the LTA as one of the top 3 schools nationwide for boys tennis and as one of the top 5 for girls.

David Hall, Director of Tennis, said, “It has been an incredible journey and I am so pleased for the team of Oscar Cutting, Karim Najia, Charlie James, Ed Pomeroy and Clemens Rathmanner. The Culford players were magnificent all weekend.” Culford Tennis Scholars Oscar and Ed are from Suffolk, Charlie is from Cambridgeshire, Karim comes from London and Clemens is from Germany.
