Borough Tennis Championships 2019

On Monday 3rd June last, our two Year 4 tennis teams travelled to Riverside school to take part in the annual Year 4 borough tennis championships. 

After weeks of training on our Valence school grounds, there was great optimism for success from our talented tennis squad that was split into two teams, Valence Reds and Valence Blues.

Valence Reds and Valence Blues both topped their league tables, beating Beam, St Vincents, Ripple Grafton, Rush Green and St Josephs respectively before making it to the semi-finals to face George Carey and Northbury school. They drew both semi-finals but narrowly missed out on the final due to points difference. 

Our tennis teams played impressive tennis and are proud of our achievement. Both our teams received beautiful bronze tennis medals at the medal ceremony by the Barking and Dagenham school games organisers.

Congratulations to all involved!
