We had a fantastic afternoon of tennis at Beckford Tennis Club who hosted the District Finals for Years 1&2. Four schools (us, Winchcombe Abbey, Oak Hill and Ashton) each put in two teams. Our children played a mix of singles and mixed doubles - eight matches in total.
Gretton A was Tilda, Grace, Marley & Tom. All four played exceptionally well and won most of their matches. They came second overall and will be representing the school at the County Finals in Gloucester next week!
Gretton B was Annabelle, Ava, Felix B and Monty. The team grew stronger and more confident with every match. Monty showed strong tennis skills, Felix displayed immense power in his serve (with some flying over the fence as he is used to a full size not half size court!) and the two girls showing great improvement in their confidence and skills by the end of the session.
All eight children were a credit to the school and behaved very well on a hot sunny afternoon. All received a certificate and prize plus Gretton A received Silver Medals for their achievement.
