Because we lost when we played against Hillyfield Park, they went through to the finals so sadly we went into second place.


Here are some quotes from the children who took part:

“I felt nervous when I first stepped onto the court because I was the only girl on the team and I had to play the whole time.  However, after the first game, where we won, my confidence grew and I loved every minute”  Zainab, 5Y

“I felt quite nervous before the first game because I saw all of the schools but once I was there for a bit my nerves calmed down and I scored quite a bit. I am also quite happy that we went to the semi-finals because we got quite further than I expected.”   Joe, 5Y
