What a wonderful fun day was had by Alfriston School Year 9 girls on Thursday 7 November 2013 at the South Bucks Special Schools Sports Association Tennis Festival at Halton Tennis Centre. Other attending schools were Penn School, Chiltern Gate, Wendover House and Maplewood School.
Morning sessions were indoors working on hand and eye co-ordination and during the afternoon outdoor session the main focus was on forearm. The aim was to give the children a positive experience of tennis and possibly draw more children into the sport and see more children taking it up regularly. Each participant will receive a certificate from the Centre. Some of our girls already join our Tennis Club which is held after school on Wednesdays. The girls were all very excited, and some a little nervous at first but determined to enjoy the challenge. Quote from one student was “it was the best day ever”!
