This year’s Dover Schools’ Games’ Tennis Tournament was held at Deal Indoor Tennis Centre (DITC) on 3rd April. For over 2 hours, there was a hubbub of tennis activities as 10 mini-tennis courts were in constant use as 12 teams competed against each other in 2 round robin boxes.
All 3 of our teams performed fantastically well with both our A team (Bobby, Isla, Liam and Jamie) and B team (Evan, Harley, Nathan and Amelia) winning all their matches. Unfortunately though, as other teams outscored us in their other matches, we didn’t make the final. However, we were very proud of all our children, both in their play and their sportsmanship, and so in recognition of their achievement, we celebrated our players in today’s end-of-term assembly by presenting our own medals to them.
Also, thank you to Luke, Liam, Jack, Ruby and Che (all Y5) who undertook scoring duties throughout the afternoon in order to help with the running of the event. You, with all our players, were a credit to our school.
