Tennis News - students perform very well in recent events!


Earlier this term, four children (three juniors and 1 infant) took part in the Kent Schools Doubles Qualifying event. Rory and Ewan (both in Year 5) doubled up in the Green event. Cameron (Year 3) and Ben (Year 2 and the current under 8 Kent County champion) doubled up in the red event.

Both teams played flawless tennis, winning their respective events. This success meant that the doubles partners travelled all the way to Bromley to compete in the Kent 2015 Annual Championships Finals. A fantastic achievement in its own right when you think about how many children were involved to begin with.

The event took place on Friday the 26th June and the standard was of the highest level. After some fantastic tennis, Rory and Ewan found themselves finishing third in the green competition. Cameron and Ben managed to go one better and, after a very tight final, they finished second. The incredible achievements of these children is no fluke. They train incredibly hard and put every effort into a sport in which I know they will go on to have much success. St. Stephen’s Junior and Infants are incredibly proud of them. Well done.

Update: Sports Day

After a successful event, we'd like to thank all involved for their participation and support in making for an extremely successful day. Well done to all the children for your enthusiasm and eagerness, and for the true sportsmanship and good spirit shown throughout the day.
