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'd 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 was only the top two teams who'd 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 to these playoffs! After facing Fernwood (again!), as well as Southwark A and St Mary's, we scored enough points to finish in 2nd place. As it turns out, we were only one point away from winning gold.
A huge well done to all our players! This was the first time ever that Whitemoor had two teams in the finals, and the first time in five years that we 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.
