Sebastian Coventry Plays With British Tennis Pro

On Wednesday 3rd January, Seb was lucky enough to play tennis with one of Britain’s top ladies professional tennis players Alicia Barnett.

He spent an hour on court at David Lloyd Gloucester, hitting with Lissey (aged 24) who is from Painswick and currently ranked 20 in the UK (682 in the world). She helped him work on his forehand, they practiced volley shots and generally just had lots of fun.

Such a fantastic opportunity for a 7 year old. We are very grateful to Lissey for taking time out from her off season prep to give something back to the club she grew up playing at and are hoping to keep in touch

Phoebe Shellard

Hi my name is Phoebe shellard, I’m 7 years old and I’m in year 3! In August my mum had an email from my dancing teachers at Ballyhoo asking me to be a part of Strouds first ever Pantomine called Robin Hood at Stroud Subscription Rooms 👏
Out of over 200 pupils there was only 20 selected and I was very happy to be 1 of them. I have been practising very hard with extra lessons every week and at home.
I can’t wait to be dancing and singing in the Pantomine at Christmas 🎄

Seb C

On Friday 1st December, Seb took part in the annual David Lloyd Tennis Club Championships in Gloucester. He played in the Mini Reds soft ball tournament which is for players aged 8 or under. Seb played brilliantly and won all 5 of his matches. A very impressive result indeed – not only to win but to win every match to take the championship. It was made even more special as its Seb’s first ever tournament win. He is very happy with his trophy and another medal to add to his collection!

I play for GVR football club, Under 12’s even though I am only 10.Normally I play in defence, however recently I have been playing on the wing. Although we don’t win our matches, the team spirit is always there. Our best result and latest match ended 3-1 and this was a very enjoyable game because I almost scored. This match was against Slimbridge (away) they are a very strong side and this was our best match because our teamwork was increasingly strong.

On the 25th November 2017 I competed in the British Modern Biathlon Championships in Solihull.

I had to complete a timed 800m track run and a timed 50m swim, and points are given for each event. My time for the 800m run was 2 minutes 26 seconds and my time for the 50m swim was 31.23 seconds.

I came first overall and was 63 points ahead of the boy in second place. 46 boys in total from around the United Kingdom qualified for the Under 12 competition.

I have now been British Modern Biathlon Champion for my age group three years running as I also won the event in 2015 and 2016.
