November saw a great team performance from 4 of our year 4 children in the mini tennis competition at William Hulme Grammar School. After winning 3 out of 4 matches against other Manchester schools, Manley Park came 2nd in their group, just missing out on the city wide finals. Cheered on by some great support from the sidelines, the children battled hard in every game and played some outstanding tennis.
Phoebe Burton and Joel Anderton in 4JM said " We really enjoyed it because we had the chance to play against other schools. If this opportunity came up again I would definitely say yes!" Jacob Holt and Layla Ayyub in 4NM added "We really enjoyed it because it gave us a chance to improve our tennis skills".
Given that it was their first experience of playing in a tennis tournament the children wasted no time in equipping themselves in unfamiliar circumstances and they should be incredibly proud of their achievement. Well done children!
