Project Ability East London/Cumberland SSP Inclusive Tennis Tournament
13th December 2013
Congratulations to the Cumberland Inclusive Tennis squad for finishing 2nd in the Project Ability East London/Cumberland SSP Inclusive Tennis Tournament, held in the Hub on the 10th December. Inclusive Tennis is a modified format of the game played on badminton sized courts with softer balls and smaller rackets. The rules are also modified so that players can hit the ball after the second bounce. Teams had to consist of 2 boys and 2 girls per match, with two of the participants being registered as having moderate or severe learning difficulties. The Cumberland squad were: Shifa Ali, Ramona Savin and Antonio Barbosa from year 7, Tony Duong and Salman Salam from year 8 and Sophie Bryant in year 9. A pic of the runners up is attached. Well done to the team for their excellent performance. Also, a big well done to Carlos Torres, Abdi Hassan, Elonas Voliekevicius, Georgie Foster and Mohammed Sisay for their work in umpiring and scoring the matches, and helping the players with the rules throughout.
