On Tuesday 12th June, King’s College Murcia entered their first ever Padel tournament. The event was held at BluPadel near Alicante and was a top class facility. We entered pairs from Year 8 – 10 both boys and girls and played very well. The format of the day meant we played matches against El Limonar Murcia, King’s College Alicante and Newton College. The students at our school are very passionate about sport, and Padel was a great opportunity for some of our students who were not involved in other teams.
The stand out performances of the day involved our Year 8 girls pair of Marina and Carmela picking up bronzes, along with our Year 8 boys of Michael and Charlie. The Year 9 boys pair of Gonzalo M and Alberto E picked up bronze but only lost one game by one point, so were so unlucky to miss out on gold.
It was a great event and we cannot wait to attend more in the future.
