Banbury Area Mini Red Tennis

Year 3/4 children from the Banbury Area competed at the mini red tennis festival on Thursday 11th May.  The 49 children from Harriers, St. Mary’s, Hillview, Bishop Loveday, Hanwell Fields and The Grange all played tie break style matches against their equivalent seeds.   The 18 Year 10 leaders from Banbury Academy were kept very busy as they umpired the 115 matches.  The children were encouraged to fight for every point as they would be totalled up at the end of the competition to decide who the winning teams were…..and they certainly did!  The standard of play was exceptionally high, particularly on the seed 1 and seed 2 courts, with lots of the children demonstrating impressive technique and gameplay.   

Well done to the eventual winners Bishop Loveday who won an amazing 33 out of 39 matches and were 51 points ahead of The Grange who came 2nd.  Hillview were just 26 points behind The Grange and finished in 3rd and it was even closer between Hillview and St. Mary’s who came 4th with just 15 points between them.  Well done to all the children for a great morning of tennis.

Lots of the leaders reported back that the children had been very honest (the focus School Games value) if they were asked to confirm where a ball had landed.  6 of the children received special honesty awards at the end of the festival – well done!
