Southwark Park New Tennis Courts
A group of children from the school went over to Southwark Park for the opening of the new tennis courts. Greg Rusedski the British-Canadian former tennis professional was there to perform the ceremony alongside Councillor Barrie Hargrove, Southwark Cabinet member for public health, parks and leisure.
The children all had an opportunity chat to and question Greg Rusedski , he told them about his life as a professional tennis player. He knew many people who are still playing tennis today, like Andy Murray and Serena Williams, and now works training tennis players and commentating on tennis matches on television.
They also had the opportunity to play tennis with Greg Rusedski and the school was given some tennis racquets and balls for our PE resources.
Maybe we have a future Wimbledon champion in our midst!
