Real Tennis Pupils Given Royal Seal of Approval

  • Royal visit to Manchester Real Tennis and Racquets Club

Four boys and three girls from Bolton School, who have been attending coaching sessions at the Manchester Real Tennis and Racquets Club in Salford for the past five months, were thrilled to be paid a visit by HRH Prince Edwards, The Earl of Wessex. 

Veer Patel, Thomas Martin, Ben Clarkson, Harvey Dhokia, Holly Fowler, Isabel Heaton and Faye Clarkson were taking part in a mini tournament against teams from Manchester Grammar School, Manchester High School for Girls, Stockport Grammar School and Haslingden High School. The Earl of Wessex, who is attempting to visit every real tennis playing club in the country during 2018, handed out commemorative medals to all participants. He then spoke with the 32 pupils who have taken part in the training and their parents whilst enjoying tea and cake.
