Amy and Hannah win first round of Tennis Tournament


Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan learners Amy and Hannah Kennedy, aged 11, have won the first round of a Conwy Schools’ Tennis Tournament.

The twins won their matches against Rydal Penrhos, Ysgol Eirias and St David’s College and now go forward to the next round of the competition at Caernarfon. They are also part of the North Wales County team playing the County Cup this weekend. 

The twins started playing tennis when they were at primary school and were soon playing for their school Ysgol Cynfran in Llysfaen. They also played at club level at Eirias Park.

Last August Amy was runner up in the North Wales Road to Wimbledon Qualifier. Her prize was a 3 hour training session with 50 children from all over the World at Wimbledon with Sir Tim Henman.

The girls are also talented cricket players, taking part in various matches at Colwyn Bay Cricket Club for MACS (Mixed Ability Cricket Section). Later this month they are going to play at Lords cricket ground, where they will represent Wales and later in the month in Newport,South Wales.


The twins also have a brother, Matthew who is 14. He will be joining them to represent Wales at Lords this month with another Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan learner, Molly Fowler. The club is run by Neil Roberts and his son Elliott, who is also a former Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan learner.

Mr Lee Kennedy, father of Hannah, Amy and Matthew said: “We are both just so proud of what the girls have achieved in such a short period of time. Their dedication to their coach and the hard work put in even on days when they aren't really up for a match or training session is a testament to them both.”

Mr Lee Cummins Headteacher at Ysgol Emrys ap Iwan commened: “It is fantastic to see the learners achieving at such a great level.”
