They grabbed the silver medal, leaving their opponents to settle for the bronze.

The silver medalist ended the campaign with two wins and two losses while Golden Grove Primary had one win and three losses.

Six schools were initially slated to compete in this year’s edition of the competition, but three dropped out for undisclosed reasons.

The participating teams however competed in two rounds of round robin matches at the National Tennis Centre.

Each of the seven players would play a singles match and the winner would be the school who won the most matches that day.

The Tennis Unit in the Ministry of Education and Sports thanked their sponsors Cool and Smooth and Island Provision Group of Companies Ltd. for their contribution as good corporate citizens in the development of the youth of Antigua and Barbuda through school sports.
