Duncan Millar, the organiser of the event said; “It was great to see so many children getting their first taste of competitive tennis and in a fabulous community club environment. There were some really close and exciting matches that were all played in a lovely, friendly spirit.

st-laurence-a-winnersWell done to all of the teams and children who took part and a big thank you to all of the sports leaders who did a fantastic job of scoring the games, encouraging the children competing and generally helping the event run so smoothly.”

All children received a certificate and a flyer signposting them to tennis camps and courses at Cambridge LTC who very kindly let us use their facilities for the competition.

Good luck to St Laurence and Abbey Meadows when they compete in the level 3 competition on the 30thJune.
