Tennis Report

The last week before half term saw all my Mini Tennis stars working very hard on developing their racket and ball skills and basic strokes. We will be completing our first mini tennis award after half-term and all the pupils will receive a certificate celebrating their achievements. I am absolutely delighted with the fantastic progress made by all our mini tennis players this term.

Players of the Week
Jack (Nursery) for his excellent forehands and tremendous improvement this term.
Reno (Year 1) for outstanding improvement with his racket and ball skills and groundstrokes.

Tennis coaching for Upper Prep and Senior pupilsl starts again after the half-term break. I look forward to seeing you all then!
