Despite the bad weather throughout the week it just decided to be favourable during this particular day the 13th of March. Pupils turned up in large numbers for the long awaited day different schools which participate In the squad were well represented, the boys and girls summing up to 57, In attendance were pupils from Nazarene, Cana Junior, St Catherine and Kid star Academy aged 6 to 12 years.

The boys and girls started up with registration and warm up which was done by the coaches then assumed the day’s activity that was playing tennis. The matches were well carried out with the children taking lead in being referees and guiding the others in counting scores and watching out for the mistakes made during the matches.

The girls played against fellow girls from different schools and Salipto Achieng who is 9years old from Kid star Academy exhibited exemplary results as she led in the girls team and for the boys Aldon Juma who is 10 years from St Catherine shone as the Golden boy from the matches played with good skills in ‘forehand and backhand’. I am glad that the lessons I have been teaching the kids were not in vain as they are putting them into practise I will put more effort in training them so that they can participate in tournaments with other kids where they can win and be given uniforms as that’s one of the resource the team lacks said Asha Adongo one of the coaches.

The coaches were impressed as this was a new group of the squad and they were really quick learners, had the zeal to learn the game, had teamwork and they positively accepted corrections when they went wrong. The children finished by having a meal and later departed to their specific schools with a promise to do better.
