On Wednesday 24th March 2016, 15 primary schools from across the borough came to Merton School Sports Partnerships annual Year 5/6 Tri- Golf Competition at Wimbledon Park Golf Club. Tri-Golf is a modified version of golf that uses foam balls, a plastic putter and chipper. The competition is made up of 8 stations; 4 putting and 4 chipping. The objective of the stations is to work as a team to score as many points as you can in 5 minutes. The winning team is the school with the greatest number of points after completing all 8 stations.

The day was split into two heats, an afternoon and a morning heat. From this, the results of both heats were compared to find an overall Tri Golf Borough champion. The morning heat consisted of eight schools with 10 students in each team. During the competition, all students demonstrated great team spirit and team work. Wimbledon Chase had a great start to the morning with a score of 279 in the Down the Middle chipping station. Links also achieved a whopping score of 42 on the Bullseye station which should be highly commended. Throughout the day, Dundonald, Links, St Mary’s and Wimbledon Chase were battling it out to get the medalling positions however St Mary’s narrowly missed out on finishing 3rd to Links by 8 points. Second position went to Dundonald and our winners of Pool A were Wimbledon Chase.

In the afternoon, we saw 7 new schools competing to be Tri Golf Borough champions. A determined St Teresa’s A and B team flew out of the starting blocks reaching record breaking score on many stations. Poplar also had the gold medal in sight, gaining highest scores on many of the chipping stations and was a fighting contender for St Teresa’s. However, St Teresa’s A team did come away with the gold medal and were also named our Tri-Golf Borough Champions.

Well done to all involved and a special thanks goes to Wimbledon Park Golf Club and the Rutlish Leaders for helping with the event.
