2017 UVHS Primary Mini tennis Red Competition

Wednesday May 3 saw our annual Year 3/4 Primary Mini tennis Red Competition for small and large schools within the Ulverston cluster being held at Ulverston Tennis Centre.  We had 7 schools enter this year (Pennington, Pennybridge, Croftlands, Low Furness, SJB, St Mary’s and Church Walk) with the winning large and small school earning a place at the Furness Area Finals at the end of May.  The competition was played across a two group format with 4 pupils from each school with the boys and girls being ranked 1 and 2 playing games against other schools.  As we only had one small school enter, Church Walk would not need a final and would move on to the next stage.  However, the winning large schools from each group would play each other in a final at the end of the group games.  The standard of tennis was wonderful with scintillating forehands and backhands being played on each of the 8 mini courts.  Roger Federer and Andy Murray would have been impressed had they been on hand to watch.  In the end Low Furness played Pennybridge in the large school final and although each game was very close, Low Furness won 3-1 to take the large school spot at the Furness Mini tennis Comp in May.  Well done to all who took part.
