A Day Out at Wimbledon

On Monday 1st July 2019, we took 10 Year 7 pupils who have showed excellent commitment and enthusiasm towards PE this year to Wimbledon tennis tournament. We had tickets for Court 1 and Court 3 and had a fantastic day watching some of the worlds best tennis players. Highlights were watching upcoming Cori Gauff, who is the second youngest player to ever play at the tournament at just 15 years old, defeating American powerhouse Venus Williams. Other matches included Halep the 7th seed Lady go through in straight sets after toughly contested match and top 20 seeds Anderson & Monfils both making their way to the second round in the Mens competition.

The pupils had a fantastic day and were enthusiastic throughout, chasing anyone with a tennis racket for autographs.
