Tennis Trip to Nottingham Tennis Centre
The girls were inspired by international players, and enjoyed some coaching and matches too at this fantastic tennis event!
Girls from Years 7 and 9 visited the Nottingham Tennis Centre on a very sunny day in June. The Nottingham Schools Tennis Festival 2015 is part of the Aegon Open Nottingham WTA (women’s) events, which are pre-Wimbledon grass court events starring international players. The girls all took part in interactive practical sessions in the morning, including Cardio-Tennis where they were able to demonstrate their tennis skills (and dancing skills!) whilst jumping around to music. They then took on the boys from Crown Hills in the exciting 'Touch Tennis Games'. After lunch the girls were able to tour around the centre and following the lead of our super guide, Holly, watch and meet some of the international players. All girls came away with a signed tennis ball by Daniela Hantuchová, a Slovak tennis player and as of April 2015, ranked world number 46 in singles. A fantastic day was had by all and hopefully inspired the girls to get out on those courts in the sunshine!
