This was the inaugural year of the event and it is hoped to become an annual fixture in Heron's school tennis programme. St Columb Major, Polwhele, Newquay Junior, Roche Community and Trenance Infants Schools have had us provide our coaching services to their pupils recently.
They were invited to bring mixed teams of 8 players to compete in a trailblazing event, designed so players could compete in friendly challenges of hitting shots into goals, throwing into hoops and firing balls in "Keep Your Bedrooms Tidy!" It gave many players their first opportunity to play in a team and represent their school in a fun tennis event.
Thanks to the 56 children who came and to their teachers who brought them. Thanks also to Tretherras' Leaders and our coaches who made the afternoon such a success, and helped bring so much tennis fun to youngsters new to our sport! *The Primary School Games, which is on May 22 at Heron, targets each school's best players when they compete in doubles matches against each other.
