Year 5 and 6 Mixed Tennis Tournament

On Wednesday 14th March, four children from Chilcote represented the school at a mixed tennis tournament at Billesley tennis center.

Seven schools entered the tournament and all the schools played each other once. The teams were split into boy 1, boy 2, girl 1 and girl 2. The children then played against the corresponding opponent from the other schools. Each child had the chance to earn 2 points for the team by winning, 1 point for a draw and 0 points for a loss. The total points for each team was calculated after all of the matches to give the overall winning team.

Chilcote started off with a game against Yardley Wood and all four children managed to win their individual matches, thus earning 8 points.

Secondly, Chilcote played against Hollywood and won three of the four matches and picked up another six points.

Next, they played against The Oaks and again managed to get maximum points (8).

After that, they played against Grendon and fantastically managed to get 8 points again. After four matches the children had won eleven out of a possible twelve games.

Then, Chilcote had their toughest match of the day so far and unfortunately had a mini wobble. They drew one, lost two and won one of their four matches.

This meant moving into the final game Chilcote had to win more than their opponents, Bells Farm as they were 1 point going into the final match. Fortunately, Chilcote won three and lost only one of their matches.

The final scores for all the schools were:

1) Chilcote 39
2) Bells Farm 36
3) Hall Green 30
4) Yardley Wood 21
5) The Oaks 20
6) Hollywood 12
7) Grendon 9

A massive well done to all of the children involved for a fantastic performance and win!!!
