Last Thursday saw the Yr. 3/4 mini tennis red tournament take place at The Nottingham Tennis Centre. It was a great afternoon of tennis and brilliant to see so many teams represented from schools across the City.

Many schools have taken part in the free tennis package offered by The Tennis Centre coaches and funded by the LTA. The package offered teachers the chance to access a teachers tennis workshop, have new equipment and resources to use in school and then 3 coaching sessions in their school to 2 classes.

We had 34 teams in total take part in the tournament and over 300 matches were played across the 16 indoor courts.
Teams took part in group stage matches before being divided into standings for a final match.

The top 8 teams from the group stages took part in quarter, semi-finals and finals to decide their overall ranking.

1st- Fernwood A team
2nd Fernwood B team
3rd- Ambleside Primary
