Battle of the Tennis Pride
After some court side tennis banter over whether students could beat their teachers in sport, Year 6 students, Mitch Garcia and Zack Rankin, wanted to see how they would go against their tennis coach, Mr Spink, in a friendly game of tennis.
Mitch and Zack, both members of the Inter Schools tennis team, strategised how they could defeat their teachers at tennis. Mr Spink needed a partner for doubles and Mr Ruben, who coaches the Friday tennis sport, was the ideal candidate.
On the day of the game, word had got around the primary school playground that Mitch and Zack would be taking on their teachers, and an encouraging group of students watched the first student vs teacher tennis match at Pimpama campus during a morning tea break.
Mr Spink and Mr Ruben played a fair game to beat the boys five games to one. The students have vowed to have a rematch and hope to reverse the score in the near future.
Who knows, this match might become a regular event on the social calendar as the students progress in their school years and sporting prowess! Let the battle continue!
