Meriden has continued its success in the prestigious Tildesley Tennis Shield tournament for the fifteenth consecutive year, retaining the Championship and Doubles titles, and regaining the Singles title for 2024.

The players’ competitiveness and gracious sportsmanship were on display throughout the two-day tournament. The squad’s hard work and dedication saw an all-Meriden final in both the Singles and Doubles events.

Giselle Guillen, Jizelle Sibai and Miranda Xu reached the semi-finals in the Singles event. Advancing through to the final match, Giselle Guillen was the eventual winner, defeating Jizelle Sibai 8 – 5.

Meriden continued to dominate in the Doubles competition this year, with all six pairs reaching the quarter-finals and three pairs progressing to the semi-finals.

This is the fifteenth consecutive year that Meriden has taken out the top two positions in the Doubles matches.

Aimee Jin and Valentyna Rosa were victorious in the Doubles event, after finishing as runners-up in their maiden tournament last year. In a closely contested finals match, the pair defeated Ariel Gunawan and Nikitha Desai 8 – 7.

Meriden Principal, Mrs Lisa Brown, said the Tildesley tournament means a lot to Meriden. “We’ve obviously had tremendous success but that hasn’t always been the case.”

“The most significant effect of Tildesley is how it changed the School’s culture and inspired our students to strive to succeed across all disciplines. And that is why it is such an important tournament to us.”
