Wokingham School Games Tri-Golf

14th May 2019

On Tuesday 14th May, the Year 3/4 Tri-Golf Team travelled to Sand Martins Golf Club to compete in the annual golf competition. The children were required to chip and putt their way through a variety of points-based stations, resulting in an overall winner who would represent Wokingham in the Berkshire County Finals.

With the sun scorching the immaculately cut grass, the children battled hard to earn as many points for Shinfield St. Mary’s as possible over the 2 hours. Mr Lappin was astounded by the resilience shown by the children and the comradery they showed at each station they completed. With many of the children having learnt to chip the golf ball on long uneven grass at lunch times, chipping the ball on the Sand Martins grass was a piece of cake! The heat really took its toll by the end of the competition but the focus of the Shinfield St. Mary’s children did not waver. After a tense wait, the results were announced and Shinfield St. Mary’s were crowned champions in 1st place! Smiling faces turned to beaming faces as they collected their medals from the Mayor and posed for their photos. The Berkshire County Finals await!
