On Saturday SAIS entered a team in the Under 13 section of the Shenzhen Dodgebee tournament. Coached by teachers. Mike Penney and Matt Koo the team have only been playing the sport for a little over 2 months. Competing against teams who have been together for several years the SAIS team played 6 group matches before being defeated in the semi-final by the eventual winners.
周六，深美国际学校的学生参加了深圳躲避盘13岁以下组的春季赛。在迈克·彭尼（Mike Penney）和马特·古（Matt Koo）老师的指导下，深美团队的学生们已经进行这项运动训练两个多月了。这一次比赛是与已经训练多年的球队竞争，深美团队不畏困难，不惧挑战，奋勇至上，一共参加了6场小组赛，冲进半决赛。
With 16 players in the squad and 13 on court at any one time players were able to be rotated to ensure we had fresh legs every time.
The day was hot and long but spirits were high as the team came in a very creditable 4thplace in the tournament. Most of our players will also be eligible for under 13 teams next year and now they have some experience of playing and of being in a tournament we are sure they will come back even stronger next time.
Well done team.
Well done our coaching staff.
