There were 2 events running simultaneously during the afternoon with Year 1/2 children completing a carousel of activities including: Striking a ball, Caterpillar, Rolling Rally, Volley, Target Throw and Big Red Ball. The children had a fantastic time in the sunshine and were able to improve their ball control and understanding of tennis jargon and manoeuvres.

Year 3/4 children participated in a mini tournament organised by Gavid Vickers from Infinity Tennis which enabled the children to develop their tennis skills, along with an understanding of the rules and scoring. The competition was in a round-robin format which saw Hernhill and Hampton in a play-off final for first place. Hernhill were the eventual winners in a very close game that ended 5-4.
