In the other Second round pool matches Five Acres defeated both Bure Park and Fritwell to win Pool two to take fourth place overall.  In Pool 3 Launton beat both Kings Meadow C and Southwold to win the Pool and take seventh spot of overall.  Congratulations to both St. Mary’s and Kings Meadow A who will now represent Bicester at the SSP finals on Wednesday 15th June at Banbury Tennis Club. 

During the festival, the Spirit of the Games value of honesty was a key focus area and a special certificate was presented to one child from each team in recognition of the high level of sporting behaviour they had shown throughout the event.

The standard of play throughout the festival was high and enjoyment was evident amongst all competitors and Bicester School Young Leaders.  Thank you also for Bicester Tennis Club for hosting.
