On Tuesday 2nd October, Oxford Spires Academy took 12 students from Year 8 to Florence Park tennis courts to represent OSA in the first ever Schools of Tennis Team Challenge Event. This involved students from Oxford Spires, St Gregory the Great and King Alfred (Wantage) enjoying an afternoon of tennis with a focus on participation and fun as part of the new LTA drive to get more children playing and enjoying the sport.

Playing in a doubles tournament organised by the excellent Tennis Ambassadors from Oxford Spires, under the guidance of Andy Aitkin (Oxford Community Tennis Manager), our students enjoyed working as a team and developing their skills in tennis. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and we even more delighted to come home as tournament winners, following success in both the boys final (won by Simeon Watts and William Harrison) and the girls final (won by Delilah Lunch and Ruby Frizzell). Well done to everyone who took part in playing and organising the day and we look forward to the Year 9 event in March!
