Two Oundle School pupils cleaned up at the Midlands Fives Championships in Bedford recently.

Jeremy Manger (17) and Tom Barlow (18) won the senior doubles title, overcoming a Rugby School pair 15-5 in the final, and then in the singles Manger beat his doubles partner 2-1 in an all-Oundle final.

Master in charge of Fives, Mike Case, commented: “In recent months, both boys have worked tremendously hard to develop their game and I am delighted for them.”

Fives is a ball game played with hands or bat in a court with two, three or four walls.
