The first Westway Schools Wallball Tournament took place on Friday 14th July with 32 children taking part.
Pupils from three local primary schools battled for the trophy – St Mary of the Angels, St Charles and Thomas Jones. Each school entered a team of four boys and four girls with the round robin format producing some competitive yet friendly matches.
Dan Pritchard, wallball coach at the Westway Sports and Fitness Centre in Crowthorne Way, North Kensington, said:
“All the children, the teachers and the parents who came to support had a great day and the standard achieved by the boys and girls was remarkable considering how little they had played before.”
The winning school was Thomas Jones which also produced the Boys’ Champion, Ramy and the Girls’ Champion, Lirio. St Charles were second with St Mary’s third.
Next term it is planned to hold further tournaments for both primary and secondary schools and during the school holidays there will be some special Wallball and Eton Fives Days which are open to all local children from age seven upwards.
