Tennis Cluster Competition

Cluster Tennis Festival

On Monday 5th February eight of our Y3 pupils took part in the Cluster Tennis Festival at Manor Academy.  All Y3 children have been taking part in tennis sessions over the past four weeks with local tennis coach Mark Barrass.  Mark, who has been working in other schools in the cluster, had the very difficult decision of choosing only four girls and four boys from our Y3 classes.

There were four schools involved in the competition which involved the children taking part in mini matches as well as team challenges. The overall winners of the competition were Grange School who just pipped Fens to the post by one point.  Our children worked well individually and as part of a team throughout the morning as they demonstrated fantastic tennis and thoroughly enjoyed the competition. Well done to all involved!

Fantastic performances from many pupils, with winners in many races, meant that sixteen of our children earned a place in the town finals in the last week of term. Well done to everybody who took part.
