Tournament Result – Wednesday 6th June – Y3/4 Mini-Tennis Red Finals
Earlier today, both of our Y3/4 Tennis teams returned to the courts of Nottingham Tennis Centre – ready to compete in the grand finals.
Here we faced the 9 best teams from the 30 or so who had entered either of the heats. They were: Our Lady OPS, Fernwood Juniors, St Mary's Hyson Green, Southwark (A&B), Claremont, Scotholme and, of course, Whitemoor (A&B).
On the one set of courts our A Team played against Fernwood, Scotholme, Southwark B and Claremont; whilst our B team played against Our Lady OPS, Southwark A and St Mary's on the other courts. In both groups, it would only be the top two teams to go through to the medal playoffs.
By the end of the first round, where high-quality games of tennis were played by all, we discovered that Whitemoor A had made it through to these playoffs!
After playing against Fernwood (again!), as well as Southwark A and St Mary's, our A Team scored enough points to finish in 2nd place. As it turns out, they were only one point away from winning the gold medal.
A huge well done to all our players! This was the first time ever that Whitemoor had two teams in the finals of the Tennis, and the first time in five years that a team managed to finish in a medal position.
Whitemoor's Y3/4 Tennis superstars were: Reuben K, Abdullah T, Areeb A, Subham H, Shay A, Alyssia N, Bhakti G and Kuleni S.
