Middlesbrough Deaf Tennis Champs!
Year’s 7,9 and 10 took part in the North East Deaf Tennis competition at Middlesbrough. The event had more entrants than usual and the standard of tennis played was very high. Our pupils did themselves proud; in the boys under 12’s competition Tyler and Macauley met in the final after easily seeing off their semi final opponents. Both boys played some excellent tennis and it was a great game to watch, with Macauley triumphing in a close game. In the girls under 15’s Rebecca and Catherine were unfortunately drawn against each other in the semis preventing another all St John’s final. It was another close game with Rebecca the eventual winner but unfortunately she couldn’t repeat this and finished as runner up in the final.
