Year 3/4 Tennis Festival 2013

Citywide Tennis Festival

On Monday March 4th, Kings School and Victoria Road arrived at Sir John Hunt ready to fight it out for the crown of the Plymouth School Sports Partnership tennis champion of the world!  The stage was set, the umpires ready, the atmosphere tense...

The festival started with some small games to get the students warmed up, in the tennis cricket match Victoria Road struck the first blow winning 13 runs to 12. So the stage was set for a fantastic competition to rival Wimbledon.

Each of the year 3/4 students would play each other in 10 minute times games, watched over by four of our year 12 BTEC sport students : Tonie Hammacott, Bryony Gambrill, Dylan Thornton and Haydon Pinhey.

After the first two rounds of matches, it was tight at the top, with two students both winning their first two matches.  By the end of the fourth and final round it was just as close, with Sophie from Kings finishing in 3rdplace with 8 points.  The top two places both finished on 12 points, but on countback, Edward from Kings finished in second with Jonty, again from Kings School, topping the podium and lifting first prize of a brand new racket, donated by the Sir John Hunt PE department.

A fantastic time was had by all and going on todays performance Plymouth has an incredibly strong team representing us at the Level 3 Summer Games in Exeter.
