We’re delighted to announce that Hollygirt School has been named a 2019/20 Nottinghamshire County LTA Tennis Award winner in the Education category.
The LTA Tennis Awards are designed to reward and recognise exceptional contributions made at the grassroots level of tennis.
Upon winning the award, the LTA Tennis Awards team said:
“This is a very special achievement and you should be immensely proud of the wonderful and positive impact you’ve had on tennis in your community and county. Without you and the work that you do, people in Great Britain simply wouldn’t be able to play tennis and experience all the joy that tennis brings to people’s lives and communities so thank you.”

Rattling car, your engine roars like a lion.
Nervously I await to begin the race,
Motivating mechanics shout, “COME ON!”,
Bright green lights finally switch on,
It’s our time to race-
crashing cars colliding, rapid wheels turning,
speed up car, get your engine burning.
I see the checked flag flapping, it’s our final bend,
Let’s finish this car, together to the end.
