Competitions & Match Reports
We recently sent 6-strong squad to Bullers Wood to take part in the 3v3 Basketball event. We got off to a slow start but recovered to qualify for the finals, where we lost to a late late basket from one of Bickley's many talented (and tall!) players. The end of play bell rang as the ball was in flight, but dropped through the net so still counted for Bickley. Our squad were a real credit to the school, both in their play and their demeanour off court.
We can also take some pride in that we managed to beat the eventual deserved winners Scotts Park in the qualifying round.
A few days later we took four children to the Bromley Tennis Centre next to Newstead Wood Girls School. Our players did very well considering it was the first time they'd ever taken part in a tennis event. They all left the event far better players than when they arrived and it was good too see them all successfully managing to complete overhead serves by the end of the day.
