RPHS students met a host of professional tennis players this term, including Sir Andy Murray and Tim Henman OBE, as students were selected as ball girls and boys for the 3rd Pro-Am Doubles Tournament. Other professional players at the event included Grigor Dimitrov, Feliciano Lopez, Tommy Haas, Kyle Edmund, Jamie Murray OBE, Sebastian Grosjean, James Ward and Nick Kyrgios. Two groups, ‘Murray Mound’ vs. ‘Henman Hill’ competed within the group for a place in the Final. The winners of each group then competed for the Tim Henman Foundation Pro-Am Trophy. There was then an Award Ceremony and celebration dinner. “Seeing Raynes Park students as the ball persons at the tournament was simply brilliant.” said Mrs K. Heard. “I was so proud to be your Headteacher and you are an asset to your school. It was a delight to see you make the most of this incredible opportunity.”

“Can we massively thank all the ballboys and girls, and Mr Hayes for all you did to get them there,” said Kathryn at the Tim Henman Foundation. Very many thanks to the Tim Henman Foundation for asking our students to take part in this fantastic event.
