Mini Tennis Festival
This was another great event from Friday afternoon at Lynnsport organised by our cluster partnership, 2 boys and 2 girls from years 5&6 attended. We were one of four schools taking part in singles and doubles matches, finishing off with a mini Wimbledon Tournament. The children were ranked 1-4 and played their corresponding ranking from the other schools. The mini matches were scored to 7, following those matches they joined to play doubles and scoring to 11.
The afternoon ended with a mini tournament where all their names were put in a hat and drawn out and matches played, this proved very exciting and fortunately we avoided playing each other throughout. Foster was the overall winner, Charlie 4th, Amelia 6th and Bella 8th.
One said. “It’s been great, I didn’t think I could play tennis but I got better.”
Throughout the afternoon their confidence grew, going from quite nervous and I can’t hit the ball to playing good rallies and winning games. The smiles and pure elation when they had won or improved was wonderful to watch but the support they have for each other was obvious and commented on by a spectator.
Super Effort, Bella, Amelia, Foster, Charlie D.
