12 Jul Wimbledon 2019
This year we were fortunate enough to secure tickets to Wimbledon through the LTA Schools Ballot and 10 students were selected to attend the rewards trip based on their effort and progress in PE lessons, as well as their outstanding commitment to extra-curricular activities.
We attended day 3 of the championships and watched some fantastic tennis on court no.2 and the outside courts. The first game was a thrilling men’s singles match which went to 5 sets between Stan Wawrinka and Reilly Opelka. This was followed by a women’s singles game won by Simona Halep and finally we watched the start of the Kevin Anderson match.
The students really enjoyed the opportunity and were fully immersed in the Wimbledon experience which I hope will ignite a passion for tennis and encourage them to play themselves. We hope to be able to replicate this trip next year and give more students opportunities like this to increase participation in physical activity.
Students invited to attend were:
Fortunate Olaleye, Ahmed Kassa, Temi Taiwo, Emmanuella Adomo, Ronnie Fletcher, Jamilah Lartey, Megan McCabe, Rebekah Ogunturin, Jack Marshall and Maisie Lethbride.
