HKBU crowned winners at Zhuhai College Tennis Championships

浸大勇奪珠海高校網球邀請賽冠軍

HKBU tennis team won the Zhuhai College Tennis Championships, a considerable feat given that it was their first time joining the competition. 
 
Captain Lam Lai-lei (Sport and Recreational Leadership, Year 4) remarked that the competition posed a huge challenge to their stamina as all events, including men’s singles and doubles, women’s singles and doubles, and mixed doubles, were scheduled to take place in a span of only two days, therefore players might have to take part in four to five events a day, instead of the usual practice of two events a day.
 
In addition, the competition rules and culture in the Mainland differ from those in Hong Kong. Lai-lei said the coach changed the training focus accordingly to build the right chemistry among teammates and to adjust the competition strategy which enabled teammates to adapt to the new competition mode in advance. With strong morale, the team won the Championships finally.  
 

浸大網球隊首次參加珠海高校網球邀請賽,即勇奪冠軍。
 
隊長林麗妮(運動及康樂領袖四年級)表示,比賽對隊員體能極大考驗,因為短短兩日進行了男、女子單打、雙打及混雙賽事,賽程緊密,隊員一日需要應付四、五場比賽,與平日大專賽平均一日兩場賽事,難度更高。
 
另外,內地的賽制及文化與香港不大一樣。麗妮表示,在賽前訓練時,教練著重培養隊員之間的默契,以及調整出賽組合策略,讓隊員能夠提早適應,最後憑著鬥志,終奪得團體冠軍。
