Shelford and St Laurence primary schools emerged triumphant from a record number of teams taking part in the Cambridge School Sports Partnership Year 3 and 4 Mini Red Tennis competition.

The event, held at the Cambridge Lawn Tennis Club, attracted an entry of 32 teams, and they were split into zones A and B.

The matches, umpired by young tennis leaders from St Bedes, were played on the 16 mini courts.

In zone B, 16 teams played each other in a round-robin format split into four groups, with the top team in each pool going through to the semi-finals.

Grove 2 took on Orchard Park and Shelford faced Sancton Wood, with Shelford and Orchard Park qualifying for the final.

And it was Shelford that emerged victorious, with Orchard Park the runners-up.

It was a similar format in the A zone, with another 16 teams taking part.

Bottisham, Colville 1, St Laurence and Grove all finished top of their respective groups, and it was Bottisham and St Laurence that made it all the way through to the final.

And in the last two it was St Laurence who pipped Bottisham to first place, with both schools now going on to represent the Cambridge Schools Partnership at the Level 3 Games on June 29.

Lisa Woolfe, project officer for the partnership, said “The event was full of happiness and lots of children excited about tennis.

“The sun was a welcome factor after non-stop rain the previous day. When you look around the courts and see children enjoying sport, that’s when you know you’ve done a good job and are making a difference.

“Tennis is a popular sport amongst primary school children and some of the children really look forward to this annual event.”

The schools taking part in the competition were Abbey Meadows, Mayfield, Bottisham, Ridgefield, Colville, Sancton Wood, St Laurence, Stapleford, Orchard Park, Grove, Great & Little Shelford and Mayfield.
