Pupils at Dame Bradbury's Junior School are in full celebration mode after being crowned Essex and Uttlesford tennis champions.

The U9 and U11 tennis teams took the top step of the podium in their respective competitions.

The U9s played skilfully to be named joint winners alongside St Thomas More at the West Essex, Uttlesford and Harlow tournament.

The U11s were at Stebbing Tennis Club where they took the Uttlesford district tennis tournament title.

Sam Godfrey, head of sport at Dame Bradbury's, said: "Both of our teams played some excellent tennis to win the district titles in both tournaments.

"The U9s beat nine other schools to secure gold medals while the U11 team beat teams from five schools to claim the regional title.

"We’re incredibly proud of their achievements, which mark a brilliant end to the academic year."
