Our two Y3 tennis teams amazingly managed to win both gold and silver medals in the area tennis finals. The A team will now represent South Tyneside in the County Finals at the end of June at the Sunderland Tennis Centre. This Sunderland venue recently hosted an under 20 Tennis European Championships, such is the prestige and quality of the Centre.
The children served and volleyed their way to success in the tennis matches, while they also completed a number of fun tennis related challenges. Before the event, they trained with dedication and determination to improve as they all attended after school sessions. I was very proud to see their their commitment on the day of the event and to watch them working as a team on the different challenges.
It was great to see so many parents support the children at Westoe Tennis Club, which they all found particularly inspiring. Well done to everyone who was there, who contributed to a brilliant day! It was very much a case of, ‘Game, Set and Match to Year 3!’.
