ST MARY’S Primary continued their winning streak at the annual schools’ tennis tournament held at Swanage Tennis Club.

The event, which saw 160 youngsters take part, included teams from St Mark’s Primary, Swanage Primary and Corfe Castle Primary School.

Every day a different year group from each school battled for victory aiming to score points, which added up to a final total at the end of the week.

After the third day of competition, St Mary’s and St Mark’s found themselves deadlocked on 399 points apiece.

But the defending champions emerged victorious, with St Mary’s continuing their impressive run in the competition – having been crowned champions for the past four years.

Speaking after the event, Swanage Tennis coach Ryan Trickey said: “Well Done St Mary’s, yet another fantastic display and I’m sure they would agree that St Mark’s gave them a good run for their money.

"Everyone taking part showed great sportsmanship and fair play - helping each other out when necessary but always competing to win.

“We had a fantastic amount of help from St Mary’s sports leaders, along with some valued volunteers from the club which kept the tournament running smoothly.”
