Three schools battled it out in our second school event in East London. Gallions, Carpenters and Chobham brought teams of five to compete in the u8 and u11 categories.
Run by Gareth and Dan, and with help from the magnificent London Legacy volunteers, the tournament was a huge success. Games were fun, fast and friendly as players met their opposite number for speedy games to 7, their teammates chanting a chorus of support behind the lines.
We introduced our friendly serve only rules and were pleased to see every child competing with sportsmanship and decency.
In the end Carpenters won the under 8s and Gallions won the under 11s. It was a great day with fun had by all. We were truly amazed by the talent and skill on offer and can’t wait for our next tournament in summer.
Thanks as always to Chobham for hosting and to all the teachers, volunteers and coaches who made it possible. Finally to London Legacy for funding the event.
