Year 3 and 4 have been competing in the Sunderland Tennis Finals. Year 3 played very well winning most of their games and showing some great skills which allowed them to top their group and make the final against East Herrington School. Each child played one more match against an opponent from East Herrington. Winning these individual matches, Richard Avenue Primary was named the winners and the children received gold medals.

Year 4 played against the 11 other schools who had won their cluster groups. After playing lots of tennis games and taking part in the skills station, Richard Avenue Primary won their group by over 100 points which took them into the final. After a close match they finished as runners up and received silver medals and with that they now get entered into the Tyne and Wear finals.

Well done to all children involved.
