It has been an excellent first half of the Spring term – with lots of tennis and lots of FUN! Each year group from Nursery to Year 2 has their own weekly session, with record numbers of pupils attending. This half term all our mini tennis players have practised and improved their ball skills, racket skills, balance, footwork, and basic strokes. Pupils in Years 1 and 2 are also working very hard on their Highland Spring LTA Mini Tennis Rally Award – Red 5. Certificates and badges will be presented to all our mini tennis stars at the end of term.
Upper Prep and Senior School tennis
There has been no tennis coaching at school for Years 3-13 pupils during the dark winter months – but after the half-term break, the school mini tennis and tennis programme will be back! There will be a tennis quiz, a highest rally with the coach competition, a serving competition, ‘Andy Murray World No.1′ parties (I never thought in my lifetime that I would be able to write that Andy Murray is the World Number 1!) and Easter egg hunts…and plenty of games and skills development, of course!
