Crescent Tennis Teams Qualify For School Games County Primary Sports Competition
The Crescent School, Bilton, is delighted to have qualified for the Level 3 School Games Primary Sports Competition after its Year 3 and 4 and Year 5 and 6 Mini Red Tennis Teams won their respective Level 2 School Games Tennis Competitions.
Both teams snatched victorys over Abbots Farm Junior to clinch their places in the final and will now represent Eastern Warwickshire at the School Games Primary Sports Competition on Friday 7 July at Warwick University.
The Level 2 qualifying competition was organised by Harris Church of England Academy School Sports Partnership. In the Year 3 and 4 qualifier there were eight schools competing: Abbots Farm Junior, Boughton Leigh Junior, Clifton Primary, Dunchurch Junior, Northlands Primary, Oakfield Primary, The Revel Primary and the Crescent. Whilst the Year 5 and 6 Crescent team played Abbots Farm Junior, Dunchurch Junior, Northlands Primary, Oakfield Primary, Our Lady's Primary, St Maries's Primary and The Revel Primary.
Both competitions were excellent, Ian Smart from the School Sport Partnership commented, “The players and young leaders all demonstrated the six School Games values throughout: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief and teamwork. I would like to especially thank the eight young leaders from Harris Church of England Academy who kindly volunteered to support the competition, umpiring matches and encouraging the younger players. Well done everyone!”
Huw Marshall, headteacher said, “I am very proud of our tennis teams, they played to the very best of their ability and with exemplary sportsmanship - I know they are looking forward to representing Crescent in the County School Games Sports Competition.”
School Games is funded by Sport England and provides opportunities for young people to benefit from competitive sport.
Congratulations to Crescent’s winning tennis teams. We will keep our fingers crossed for more cracking Crescent tennis success.
