Year 7 / 8 District Tennis qualifier.


Due to poor weather the outdoor tennis competition had to become the indoor tennis district qualifier and so Mr Wolverson and Miss Lee took a team of 4 boys and 4 girls to take on the other schools. The competition was played in the following format; each player was ranked 1-4 and played the same rank from the opposing teams. Player 1&2 then joined forces to play 1&2 from the other schools, as did 3&4.
The boys’ team played Valley first and were comfortable in all their singles games and raced to a 4-0 lead. They were equally dominant in the doubles and had a clean sweep of 6-0.
The girls fared much the same and despite only being 3-1 from the singles, they dominated the doubles and finished 5-1 against the Retford Oaks girls.
It was then up to the boys again to show their dominance and they cantered to a 4-0 lead in the singles; thus already qualifying at this point, but they didn’t let up and were eventual 6-0 winners again.
Due to Valley not having a girls’ team this meant both teams have now qualified for the County stage of the competition and both are now Bassetlaw champions!!!
