Year 3/4 Mini Red Tennis
10 May from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
This event is part of the School Games programme and is open to all schools in the Cambridge Partnership. The top two schools in this event will qualify to represent Cambridge SSP at the School Games Summer Festival on Thursday 28thJune 2018.
The Year 3&4 Mini Tennis Red competition is aimed at young people who are new or beginners to the game, not for those who are regularly competing in Mini Tennis competitions outside of school. If a young person is regularly competing, they already get plenty of other opportunities to play and compete. Therefore this competition is not open to youngsters with an Orange 2, Orange 1, or Orange 1* or Green Rating at the time of the Level 2 event. However, we would still encourage schools to involve these young players by giving them a role such as team captain or assistant coach. Schools can check ratings here, using name and year of birth.
- Teams are mixed -2 boys and 2 girls.
- Mini Tennis Red uses badminton sized courts, 23” Mini Tennis rackets, Mini Tennis sponge balls if played indoors, or Mini Tennis red felt balls if played outdoors.
- The format is Timed Tennis; players play for a set period of time, until the whistle blows. The length of matches depends on time available and amount of entries, but matches normally last five minutes.
- Matches are singles matches with Boy 1 v Boy 1, Boy 2 v Boy 2, Girl 1 v Girl 1 & Girl 2 v Girl 2
