Perran Tennis Inter Primary Schools Tennis Tournament
Friday saw Perran Tennis host the third local Primary schools competition. Two teams from Goonhavern and two teams from Perranporth participated in a doubles event comprising of eighteen matches. Each pair played the other three respective pairs e.g. pair one’s would compete against the other pair ones.
