Regent College: Summertime Slam Tennis Festival

Regent College recently hosted a SEN Summertime Slam Tennis Festival at the Florence Lawn Tennis and Bowling Club.

Two local special schools were invited to join learners from Regent to engage in the event; there were 22 young people in total.

All learners interacted well and displayed excellent Sporting/British Values whilst fully participating in fun tennis activities.

Mr Neil McPherson, Chairman of the Florence Tennis and Bowling Club, helped with the preparations and with presenting certificates on the day.

Our special guest was Charlie Fogarty MBE, representing the Sir Stanley Matthews Foundation – Charlie was recently interviewed on Talk Sport about his journey from having a serious head injury to representing Northern Ireland in the cerebral palsy football team.

Charlie was in a comma for 10 months and is an inspiration, he is now an international motivational speaks and enjoys helping others to achieve; he said that he really enjoyed the day and would like to come to other events at the college which is always great news.
