Our sporting teams at The Willows Primary School are always a force to be reckoned with. However, we often don’t get to hear about the great individual achievements of children in their own time.


I am proud to announce that George from Year 6 won the Under Twelve boys singles, achieving both gold AND County Champion. He also won the Under 12 boys doubles (for which he received gold) and in the under 12 mixed doubles he came runner up, achieving silver.


A modest George said,

“I was really proud and I didn’t expect to win because I was playing against my friend. It goes up to three sets. After the first set, I thought, ‘I can do this because I only have to win eleven points’. It was not easy because I lost the second set. However, I did not give up. My opponent was winning on the third set and I was nervous, so I played and gave it my all. In the end, with a tremendous effort, I won.”
