On the 3rd May a selection of Year 8 students from Ferndown Middle School had the opportunity to attend a Tennis Leader Training held at Ferndown Tennis Club.

We finished 5th out of the five schools competing but some of our athletes came second in the standing long jump and howler throw a great all round performance considering there were some strong schools. Well done to Allenbourn who came first in the competition.
