Year 4 and Year 6 Tennis Finals

On Friday 22nd June four children from Year 4 and four children from Year 6 represented the school in a mixed tennis tournament at Cannon Hill park. Both Year groups were representing the Kings Heath Partnership at the Birmingham finals courtesy of winning the local partnership event. 

In both tournaments there were eleven teams split into two groups. Chilcote were in the group of six for both. Each member of the team played against the corresponding player from the other school for a set amount of time. Then their results were put together to make a score. If it was 2v2 after the four games the result of the overall match was determined by who had scored the most points across the four games.

The Year 4 children drew their first game 2v2 and drew on points scored with the school. They then won 3v1, 3v1, 4v0 and 3v1 in their next four matches. Due to the draw they had to replay against the first team and drew 2v2 again but this time the other school scored 2 more points. This meant that the group was tied three ways between Chilcote and two other schools. Fortunately, courtesy of individual wins Chilcote finished in first place in the group and progressed into the final to play against the winners of the other group - Coppice. Unfortunately, this was a step too far and Coppice ran out 4v0 winners. Having said this the Chilcote children finished the day ranked as the second best primary school tennis team in Birmingham - an incredible achievement!!!

The Year 6 children began their first game with a 2v2 draw too but unfortunately lost out on points. They then won their next game 3v1 before losing 3v1 in their next one. They lost the next match too, again 3v1 but won the final match of the day 3v1. So all in all they won 2, lost 3 including the draw/loss on points. This meant that they finished fourth in the group and as the 7th best primary school tennis team in Birmingham for Year 6 - a remarkable achievement!!!

Well done to all of the children involved in the day. Once again they all did the school proud!!!
