CHILDER Thornton served up success at the ninth Wirral Shoulders Primary Schools Tennis Tournament.
More than 100 pupils represented 13 schools during the six-week tournament staged at the Neston Recreation Centre.
Players are selected from school year two upwards, with the event working on a league basis, and Childer Thornton’s first team topped the combined score standings after 48 matches – losing only two games..
William Stockton finished second with Willaston taking third place.
Also taking part were Mostyn County Primary School, Woodfall, Rosmore, Little Sutton, Acorns, Parkgate, St Winefride’s, Whitby Heath and St Saviour’s.
Tournament organiser Mal Jones said: “It’s one of the biggest competitions in the country where so many kids will participate from local primary schools. The whole idea is to get as many kids as possible introduced to tennis at primary school level.
“Hopefully, many will then take up the game and it works really well.
“Jeremy Kaye, who is a top surgeon at Arrowe Park Hospital, supports us by buying all the shirts and trophies which is really appreciated.”
