On 11 May 2023, the back and forth of the tennis ball reverberated around the courts. As the sound punctuated the still air, the spectators held their breath: who would get the next point, Hwa Chong or Raffles?
It wasn’t an easy fight. Every time a point was scored, the audience erupted into raucous cheers. Eagle-eyed supporters craned their necks, not wanting to miss a single rally. Even with the racket created by a nearby grass cutter, the spectators’ cheers were strong, loud and unyielding. The intense atmosphere was clearly evident, with both sides determined to win.
