Seated Volleyball, Mini Tennis & Archery at Marjons

29th March 2017

A super day was had by our three teams who took part in Seated Volleyball, Archery and Mini Tennis. This was an opportunity to participate and try new events. The event saw 9 schools bringing 11 teams to compete in three events: Archery, Mini Red Tennis, Seated Volleyball. The eager participants set off on their activity in the morning, competing against each other in a round robin format.

On each activity there were some fantastic techniques performed and some great scores, considering a lot of them have not competed or even done their event before!

From the huge smiles across the room everyone had a lovely time and enjoyed trying out a new sport as well as displaying the Olympic values throughout the morning.

This event also decided what schools to put forward to the level 3 Devon Ability Games at the end of April. The results from each event are:

Archery: 1st- Sir John Hunt ‘B’ 2nd- Marine Academy ‘B’ 3rd- Cathedral Runners Up- Eggbuckland Vale

Mini Red Tennis: 1st- Montpelier 2nd- Eggbuckland 3rd- Cathedral ‘A’ Runners Up- Stoke Damerel
