St Joseph'sCatholic Primary & Nursery School

Wimbledon Watch Out!!!!

What a glorious way to spend a Thursday afternoon! Today 20 boys and girls from Year 3 and Year 4 travelled down the road to 'The Avenue Tennis Club' to take part in a local area tennis tournament.

The children have been attending Mr Fisher's after school club for the last 3 or 4 weeks and this was an ideal opportunity to put into practice all that they had leant as they competed against other schools in the Sedgemoor area. 

The children had a brilliant time in extremely hot conditions and the standard of tennis being played seemed to get better and better with every game!

Each team was made up of four children (two boys/two girls) and everyone played a series of matches against children from other schools. Points were added up and out of the two pools of schools, the top two teams contested the final. I'm pleased to say that one of the St Joseph's teams were in the final and won 3-1 against some strong opposition from neighboring St Andrew's.

Overall this was a fantastic experience for all the children and it was a great opportunity to experience tennis in a club environment. The organisation of the event by Head Coach Tim Seymour was just great and it was very kind of him to deliver ice creams to all the children participating half way through the afternoon!

Like I said at the start of this article, it was a glorious way to spend a Thursday afternoon!
