On Friday 9th June 2017, twenty nine teams from Ealing Primary schools attended the Year 3/4 Mini – Tennis Red competition at Ealing Lawn Tennis Club.
Vicar’s Green took two teams to the afternoon session, with Mrs Patel and Miss Hutchinson, where 15 school teams attended.
Teams were placed into a group of three or four and competed against the other teams to score as many points as possible at each of the following four stations:
- Physical skills
- Ball skills
- Groundstroke and volley drills
- Doubles Match play
Pupils had to work together as a team to accumulate the highest number of points possible so communication and teamwork skills were developed throughout the competition.
Team A finished 7th out of 10 teams and the sportsperson of the tournament for Team A was Jakub, for communicating well with his partner. Team B finished 3rd out of 4 teams. The sportsperson of the tournament for Team B was Hasna, for her perseverance. All Vicar’s Green children had a fantastic time, demonstrating their great ball control and teamwork skills!
Well done to all players and staff for their hard work!
