Oxfordshire School Games - Tennis County Finals

5th July 2018
Oxfordshire School Games County Finals:
 

On Thursday 5th July, three tennis teams from The Blake School went to compete at the Oxfordshire School Games in Abingdon.  All teams had qualified through previous competitions and were looking forward to this next challenge.  All the players showed a huge amount of progress and improvement in their play, they battled hard and produced some skilful performances.  Both our Year 3/4 team and our Year 5/6 team had some excellent wins and some very close games. They both managed to finish in 5th place, which is a superb achievement out of over 250 schools in Oxfordshire.

On the same day, The Blake School had another Year 4 team competing in a separate tennis competition; this team played a number of games against other schools.  After the first round of games, the team had managed to get themselves into a good position; they then played a final game, eventually taking the silver medal.  What a wonderful achievement.
