Pupils from both Deal Parochial and Kingsdown thoroughly enjoyed our school community trip to the International Tennis Tournament at Eastbourne on Sunday 23rd June 2019. Thirty-five of us travelled by coach to watch top quality tennis at this warm-up event for Wimbledon.
Our tickets allowed us to sit on any court, so between us we saw lots of British players including Johanna Konta, Harriet Dart, Katie Swan, and James Ward.
It was also fascinating to see professional tennis players at close-quarters on the practice courts.
Additionally the children enjoyed being by the practice courts as it was the perfect location for autograph hunting!
A great day was had by all!
