Macandrew Bay School

On Wednesday December 9th Macandrew Bay School had their last day of tennis this term with TennisPlus+ Coaching as a tournament day. Thankfully the weather held and we were treated with some lovely sunshine.

During the first 3 weeks we saw approximately 120 children out of which we talent identified 36 capable of playing their first 1/2 Court tournament. We had a total of 36 children play in pools of 4 (ability pools) during the course of the day. All matches were played with good sportsmanship and a lot of effort. Well done to all the players and a special thank you to the senior students who umpired all the games.

Macandrew Bay Schools age group 1/2 Court ladders are now set up based on the results of this tournament. The next step for the school will be weekly ladder challenges organised by TennisPlus+ which will start in term 1 2016. One goal is to have a minimum of 50 children on the schools age group ladders which will mean a minimum of 50 children playing matches weekly.

Thank you to Andrew Mitchell (teacher) for allowing us to come in and set up your age group ladders.

Testimonial from Mr Mitchell: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Shaun and Matt from TennisPlus+ Coaching for coming to our school and introducing 1/2 Court tennis to our students. They were both very professional in how they conducted themselves and were very flexible when we requested changes to the schedule. Our students thoroughly enjoyed themselves and with our ladders set up, I can’t wait to get the ladder challenges started in term 1. I would definitely recommend to any school in Otago to make contact with Shaun as we are very keen to get the TennisPlus+ 1/2 Court Inter-School competition started. Thank You.”

We have more schools lined up for term 1 2016. If you would like your school to participate in this programme (REMEMBER IT’S FREE – NO CHARGE) then please contact us at tennisplusdunedin@outlook.com or send a text to 0274366168.
