Four pupils from year 6 took part in the Southend Schools Tennis Festival at Garon Park on Friday 20th May. They made a fabulous start, winning the group stage of the competition with relative ease, dropping only a couple of games. Their strength continued to show in the quarter and semi final rounds as they made their way into the final. The final against a strong team from Thorpe Hall was a tense affair. The children played some outstanding tennis and persevered to the end, eventually winning by three matches to one. This great result takes them through to the Essex finals in mid June. Throughout the competition the children were extremely supportive of one another and applauded good play from their own and other teams alike.
