Tennis Champions in the making!
Brothers, Tom Y6 and Harry Y2 played against Devon and Cornwall tennis players throughout the season, accumulating points for each win. Tom topped the leader board for Devon. The top 10 players from Devon and Cornwall then played in a finals competition on Sunday 31st March 2019 – which Tom won! He got two trophies; one for topping the leader board, and one for winning the event.
In the 8U version of the same event (called Whirlwinds) Harry topped his leader board with a total of 1,500 points out of a possible 1,500. The leader board format has been brilliant for his maths – he has learned loads about averages. He has played really well in all of his tournaments and is really enjoying being part of the 8U squad for Devon Tennis
The boys have had a great season’s tennis and we are very proud of them at Rockbeare.
