Team Hill View Year 3/4 Tennis Competition
On Thursday 11th May 2017 our year three and four tennis team attending the Banbury Area tennis competition held at Banbury Academy. Our team of Joshua B, David G, Joe B, Alfie B, Keeley M, Hadiqah K, Javaria H and Maja M were all seeded one to eight and then played against the same seeded player from the other five schools present.
The children all took part in a warm up with the student leaders from Banbury Academy and then the matches got under way. The games were played on a half tennis court and using the red dot development tennis balls. The standard of tennis on display was a credit to all the children and the games were all played in a fun and sporting atmosphere.
The scoring for the competition was based on how many points each player won so closely contested games were all important even if you lost in the end.
None of our children have played competitive tennis outside of school and to see how they have developed in their skills over the last couple of years was very pleasing to see.
Following the completion of all the matches the children got into their own groups of mixed schools and just played their own fun games. This was great to see and the children were quickly making new friends.
The scores were then announced and Team Hill View achieved an amazing third place. Congratulations to all the children who took part and thank you to the staff and student leaders at Banbury Academy for an excellent event.
