Mr Magnay reports for the website about tennis in GMS.

In Key Stage 3 (U13 Girls) there has been a significant uptake in tennis and as a result there have been more tennis matches with better results than in previous years.

Sophie Apletree has demonstrated resilient performances against fierce opposition on court; she used her power and effective movement to dominate her opponents in matches.

Rebecca Tinnelly has developed some lethal winning shots that outwit opponents. This skill, combined with outstanding movement and determination, have led to some fine wins on court.

Racheal Clakre and Alice Cogram have committed many hours to developing their serve and it is now a tremendous winning mechanism. Over the season their communication within their doubles games has excelled, making them a very strong pair to beat in the tournaments.

The U13 Boys, who have taken up tennis, have shown a great commitment to the game. Ben Murado, Will Clayton and Theo Besnard have played some outstanding tennis sets within every fixture. They have an arsenal of strong shots that intelligently outwit their opponents.

James Hudson has been invaluable because he stepped in when another player was ill. James worked hard in his training, aspiring to improve and win his matches.
