Defending champions, Grey College Bloemfontein, were unable to retain the 2016 Grey Nedbank Tennis Festival played in Bloemfontein recently.

A strongly motivated St Stithians College proved over last weekend that they are the country’s top boys tennis school when they captured their first Grey Nedbank Tennis Festival title in Bloemfontein.
The Johannesburg side upset defending champions Grey College Bloemfontein in the final.
Grey College fought hard to crack the top 4 of the St Stithians line-up, but ended up losing the top four singles, all in three sets. With a lead of 4-0 there was no chance of catching a quality side like St Stithians.
St Stithians have ended the 2016 official schools tennis season unbeaten across South Africa.
Paul Roos Gymnasium of Stellenbosch beat Afrikaanse Hoër Seunskool of Pretoria to claim overall third position.
