Tennis - Sevenoaks Schools Doubles Championships
Thank goodness for indoor courts! Once again Sevenoaks School hosted the annual U9 School Doubles Championships for local schools. SPS entered 3 boys' pairs into the competition. It was a fun and exciting afternoon; I will say no more and let you read our two fantastic match reports for full details.
On Saturday 7 March, I went to the play the Sevenoaks Schools U9 Orange doubles tournament at the Sennocke Centre with Chris (Y4), Adam (Y5), Nathaniel (Y4), Nathan (Y5) and Gregory (Y4).
We all had some hard matches in our groups and played really well. Chris and I won all our matches which put us straight through to the semi-final which we won. We were in the final!
Our opponents were New Beacon. We were both a bit nervous but we got off to a good start and soon had a 5-2 lead. However, they fought back and we found ourselves 6-8 down. With some good teamwork and perseverance we won 10-8 - the first time Sevenoaks Primary have won this tournament.
Thank you to Mrs Gwinnell for coming to support us and staying to cheer us on in the final.' By Charlie (Y5)
'On Saturday 7th March 2020, the Sevenoaks Primary School tennis team went to a tournament at Sevenoaks School. The tennis tournament they played was all doubles. The doubles were: Charlie and Chris, Adam and Nathaniel, Gregory and Nathan. All of the doubles played at least four matches.
There were three courts, and the rules were: You played all of your rounds, then the two top doubles from 3 courts went through to the elimination matches. Then the two top doubles in the whole tournament went through to the GRAND FINAL!
All of our teams played really well, and had great fun representing their school by playing one of their favourite sports. Amazingly, Charlie and Chris went through to the finals up against New Beacon, and in a thrilling match they won the whole tournament with the extremely close score 10 – 8!!!!!!!!! Well done Charlie and Chris, what a fantastic tennis day it was for our amazing tennis team!!!!' By Adam (Y5)
Very well done to Charlie, Chris, Adam, Nathaniel, Nathan and Gregory.
