The FOBISIA Tennis Invitational 2016 took place in Bangkok this year from 8-11 December, hosted by Harrow International School Bangkok and Bangkok Patana School. Both the UWCSEA Dover and East teams travelled together with their U13 and U15 teams with 33 players and four coaches making the journey. The support received by the players from their fellow classmates and coaches was tremendous! UWCSEA created an amazing atmosphere during the tournament. Each of the players played a minimum of four matches each and gained valuable experience for future play.
There was a strong showing by the UWCSEA players during the tournament. Varun Banati and Tim Recacz from Dover came 2nd and 4th respectively in the U15 Boys Draw and in the U13 Girls Draw, Dover players, Bella Lake and Amanda Yeoh 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Other notable results:
Kevin (Dover) - Quarterfinals
Karit (Dover) - Round of 16
Nikkhil (East) - Round of 16
Caroline (Dover) - Quarterfinals
Sascha (East) - 4th Place
Aryan (East) - Round of 16
This year's performance was excellent, an amazing effort by everyone involved. UWCSEA looks forward to next year's FOBISIA tournament and hopes to better this year's impressive display.
