Aadi and Bommie from Year 8 became only the second Olavian pair to have won the Eton Fives U13’s Nationals. The event was held at Eton College last Friday and fielded schools who had travelled as far as North Wales! Having won through a large pools stage, and all the way to the final, they played brilliantly to defeat the defending Champions from Summerfields in Oxford, who had won this for the previous three years.
After a very tense and level start, Bommie and Aadi began to dominate the set-piece and kept constant pressure on their hard-hitting opponents with accurate ground-shots and volleying. From 6-6, they stormed ahead to win 15-6!
Congratulations on a great achievement.
