TENNIS TOURNAMENTS - 3rd May
On the 3rd May, a team of children from Windmill took part in the Mini Red and Mini Orange Tennis Tournaments.
The Mini Reds enjoyed playing multiple games against other schools from Kirklees. After a tense wait they found out they had made it to the final. During the final match, the Mini Reds stayed calm and triumphed making Windmill champions for the second year in a row! Hooray!!
Whilst the Mini Reds were playing their matches, the Mini Oranges played five games winning every one! They made it to the final against Roberttown C Of E Junior & Infant School and played a great game coming second and winning a silver medal.
Well done Windmill!
