Game, Set & Match!!
Match Report from Mr Toovey!
'8 children from Plumberow Academy took part in a Tennis Tournament at Hockley Lawn Tennis Club, where they played against Hockley Primary and Westerings.
We had 4 year 3s 1 year 4 and 3 year 5s. Each pupil played 4 games, but never against each other. The scoring system - the first team to 10 wins, but the beauty of the format was every point countsed meaning if you lost 10-9 the losing school still scored 9 points!
We played 32 games, won 22 and lost 10 in the singles.
The Year 4 and 5s then played doubles where we played 4 matches, winning 3 and losing 1!
Score total.
Plumberow 1st with 301 points
Westerings 2nd with 267 points
Hockley 3rd with 190 points.
Plumberow children once again were very well behaved and played some brilliant Tennis!'
