Yet another fantastic tennis season at AKS was finished off with the very popular and ever growing AKS Road to Wimbledon Annual Tennis Tournament. Over 130 girls and boys from Y7-10 signed up to play in this tournament in May, whether it be singles , doubles or mixed doubles. The pupils get more out of this tournament than tennis alone, as they take charge of organising and officiating their matches.
The competitors who reached the finals played on the fantastic grass tennis courts at school ; this along with the weather all added to the sense of the occasion. Every pupil raised their game and some outstanding tennis was played.
It would not be Wimbledon if we didn’t have the traditional strawberries and cream and the enthusiastic Year 7 Ball Girls who did a tremendous job today, assisting all players.
Well done to all finalists.
