The local heats of the Kent LTA’s Primary Schools’ Doubles Tournament took place at Polo Farm in Canterbury on Thursday 9th June. It proved to be a fantastic day of tennis.
43 KS2 pupils from Deal Parochial participated across the different age group categories, as did 32 pupils from 4 other Deal area schools following our tennis outreach. It was great to see so many happy children at the end of the day, having enjoyed playing tennis.
Congratulations to Jasper and Casper (Y3), Liam and Jamie (Y6), Isla and Amelia (Y6), and Naomi and Ola (Y6), all of whom qualified for the County Finals on 17th June. We were also delighted that Warden House’s 2 pairs qualified for the Bromley Finals, as did 3 pairs from Kingsdown. Well done, everyone.
Thank you very much to the LTA for their grant, which paid for the coach transport from the Deal area schools for the afternoon events. Also, thank you to the parents who helped with the additional transport to and from Polo Farm.
Additionally, thank you to the Y8 Tennis Leaders from Dover Grammar School for Boys, and to our Y6 Tennis Leaders, for helping with the smooth running of the tournaments.
