Tennis has become a key component of PE at Dame Dorothy. We have established excellent links with our local tennis club Boldon LTC to provide top quality coaching to all of our age groups.

We have participated in many exciting events such as the Davis Cup Legacy programme; a tennis leaders programme that runs after school; regular tennis festivals and open days at Boldon LTC.

The children have a clrearly signposted pathway open to them to continue their tennis playing  outside of school.

The school is part of the LTA ballot scheme and we have received tickets in 2017 and 2018 to take pupils to Wimbledon to watch the best players in the world play.  We were even interviewed by Radio 5 Live from Henman Hill.

The school has been nominated for the Durham and Cleveland LTA school of the year award for 2018.
