The 2NDAll India P.C Batta Inter School Tennis Tournament 2017 ended on a delightful note, to say the least. The Closing Ceremony surpassed the expectations of all who had witnessed the tournament right from its commencement on 15th November 2017.

The results of the individual events were a mixed bag—some going in favour of Kasiga, some not so.

In another individual under 17 event, Kabir Kapoor beat Divyansh Rautela of Kasiga 6-3, 6-1.However, it was Kasiga’s performance in the Open Team events that stole the show and opened up new avenues of expectations and glory. In the Open Team Events Kunal Goel defeated Harshit Bansal of Doon School in a 6-3, 4-6 and 6-4 set while his counterpart Rishabh Rajgharia defeated Viksit Verma 6-2, 5-7, 7-6 to clinch the title of the winners of the tournament. This was truly an extraordinary feat.

The icing on the cake proved to be the last match with Kunal Goel which proved to be a nail biting experience for all present.  Kunal Goel lost to Kabir Kapoor 3-6, 6-3, 2-6.

The tournament had started with a zest to overcome all barriers, both psychological and physical and ended in the same vein to allow the spirit of sportsmanship to prevail, above everything else. Each player played with a competitive spirit but in spite of this fierce competitiveness it was the mutual respect and admiration for the opponent which made the tournament a truly memorable experience.

The Head of School, Ms. Sonali Sinha, in her address to the gathering asserted that the All India P.C Batta Memorial Tennis Tournament was still in its infancy, but going by the quality of competition that was experienced, one could feel that this was just the beginning of a remarkable journey ahead.
