The School Games are also a chance for children to get involved in sport and competition.

The events also try to promote important values – of honesty, respect, passion, determination, teamwork and self-belief.

All together, 19 teams from seven schools took part in the Spalding Tennis event.

School Games organiser Rupert Gibson was delighted with how the day went.

He said: “Spalding Tennis Club provided a fantastic venue which was such a great experience for the children.

“The club are really keen to get more people, old and young, playing tennis and are holding another free open day on Saturday (2-5pm).

“The seven and eight-year-olds were greeted by 24 outstanding young volunteers from The Sir John Gleed School, who led them in a warm up, gave them a bit of coaching and then umpired all the 42 games that took place. Our great thanks go to these leaders.”
