The ATP Champions Tour at the Royal Albert Hall ran like clockwork last week, when students from Charters school in Sunningdale were chosen as Ball Kids for the four-day tournament. Twenty Four students volunteered their time to retrieve stray tennis balls and ensure the players received new ones for their service games. The tournament, which features World No. 1’s, Grand Slam singles finalists, and victorious Davis Cup team members who have retired from the ATP circuit, offers spectators high quality tennis with a dash of fun.

Mrs Kirstie Hartwell, Head of PE at Charters said, “The students worked incredibly hard to prepare for their role in the weeks leading up to the tournament and thrived under the pressure of the cameras and the spotlights. Watching the skill of the players at close quarters was inspirational and it is an experience of a lifetime they will never forget. I am very proud of the students and each embodied the school’s motto of Unity, Respect, Excellence.”

Year 10 student, Kaya Campion, found himself playing alongside Tim Henman when Xavier Malisse handed him his racquet. “Even though I lost the point, the whole event was an experience I will never forget and I would love to do it again. Although I was nervous at the start, being a part of such a prestigious event was incredible.”

The existing service road and parallel parking in front of the Chobham Road Costa, Sunningdale, along with the grass strip and cherry trees, is to be redeveloped with 13 parking spaces, at right angles to Chobham Road. Work is due to begin in January 2019 and will last 6 to 8 weeks.

The  13 spaces will be 2.7m wide, and additional parking will be provided in Halfpenny Lane and Northend Lane, following the relaxation of the residents only parking during business hours.

The outline of the project has been confirmed with materials, fit to the environment, utilities etc being confirmed.

Requests were made at a recent Parish Council meeting,  to look at a reducing the speed to 20mph in the area and  an exit out of Broomfield Park such as a box junction.

Papplewick boys in Years 7 and 8 performed ‘Bugsy Malone’, from 29th November to 1st December for local schools, families and friends.

This gangster musical spoof, in which real guns are substituted by foam firing ‘splurge guns,’ is set in New York City in the early 1930s during prohibition. Rival gangs are vying for control of the nightclub scene and gun-smuggling, illicit alcohol production and a myriad other nefarious activities, associated with the New York gangster milieu, are in full swing!

The boys donned suits and fedoras, flapper dresses and cloche hats and had a lot of fun singing, dancing and acting out a stage version of Alan Parker's 1976 hit film.

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said: “Judging from the enthusiastic audiences and the generous applause, the show was a great success!”
