Extra-curricular Newsletter w/c 15th May

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s)

Road to Wimbledon 2017

We are running a Road to Wimbledon Tennis tournament after school on Wednesday 7th June here at Uppingham Community College. This is an event aimed at students aged 14 and under and gives them a chance to compete in a National tournament leading through to finals at Wimbledon.

In particular we are aiming at players who might not be involved in Clubs outside of school as this tournament gives them the chance to qualify for the County Finals. It's open to boys and girls in Years 7, 8, 9 and offers them another chance to play a fun competitive tournament.

If you would like to enter or to find out more please contact Mr Lewin at  Lewin_R@ucc.rutland.sch.uk
