Primary Schools Sports Events Series

Our ‘Primary Schools Sports Events Series’ is a series of sports competitions that run through all three academic terms. We provide all staffing, venues, equipment, transport to Bradfield, catering and prizes for the events free of charge. The events allow an increasing group of over 30 different primary schools the opportunity to compete in organised sports competitions in Mixed Netball, Cross-Country and Kwik Cricket. In addition this year we have added a mini tennis event to our programme allowing pupils the chance to use our indoor tennis centre as well as our new clay courts.
