July 1st / Last weekend our team tennis players took advantage of the opportunity to attend Wimbledon with Mrs Kerry and Miss Baxter. Sarah & Lily (Y10), Orla & Eve (Y9), Ella & Grainne (Y8) and Annabel & Alice (Y7) were all incredibly excited by the prospect of a day watching the matches on court 2 – and consequently coped really well with the disappointment of rain stopping play! The only action they saw on Court 2 was the groundstaff trying to keep it dry. However, they did get to watch the Court 1 action on the big screen and, in a plucky show of enterprise and initiative, Ella and Sarah also managed to squeeze into the entrance of Court 1 and get close-up with Rafael Nadal. So, the tennis may have been a wash-out, but the day still proved to be a great experience for the girls.
Here are a few pictures from the day – click on any image to enlarge it and/or view a slideshow.
