Dodging the rain, the Nippers have had a busy summer on the tennis courts. The girls have enjoyed at least one session of tennis a week using the astro courts at the Senior School. The U12 and U11 teams played a number of fixtures culminating in a good win against Edinburgh Academy at the end of May.
Year 4 – 7 girls and boys have played in the Nippers Tennis Tournament. This was run throughout the term by Tennis Captain, Isabella Williams and assisted by Head Nipper, Mairi Conway. The tournament culminated in a finals afternoon held during Olympic week coinciding with the start of Wimbledon. All the children enjoyed some entertaining tennis and a customary bowl of strawberries and cream.
