In search of Tennis Balls

Over the past few months the PTA have been providing tennis balls for the school to keep the boys entertained during lunch breaks. Unfortunately due to the enthusiasm and strength of the boys, they get lost over a period of time. If any of you are members of tennis clubs and could persuade them to donate any old, past their best tennis balls, they will be put to very good use. Thank you.

If you can help please contact [email protected]
