As the world’s most iconic tennis tournament returns, we have partnered with the LTA — Tennis for Britain on a Wimbledon sketching competition, guaranteed to get your class into the mood for summer sports.
Together with the LTA, we’re giving UK primary schools the chance to win a kit bag worth over £500.00 to bring tennis fun to your school — filled to the brim with rackets, tennis balls and nets.
Plus, the winning school will receive a bundle of AMAZING stationery prizes alongside their new tennis equipment kits, keeping them drawing long after Wimbledon is over.
To enter, all you need to do is download the 2022 KS1 or KS2 competition sheets from our Members’ Area. Not a member yet? Don’t worry! You can register online today — it’s completely free.
Game, Sketch & Match! invites primary school-aged children to design their own tennis ball (KS1) and kit out their own tennis player (KS2) in their favourite designs. No tennis whites or green tennis balls allowed here — your pupils are encouraged to let their creativity run free as they learn about the game of tennis, and sketch their own designs.
What's more, our members can also access the optional Game, Sketch & Match bonus activities, with a range of ICT research tasks and art ideas, differentiated for KS1, LKS2 and UKS2.
Sound good? Well, here's another reason to get involved — the first 100 teachers who send in their pupils' entries will receive a FREE stationery pack in the post.
And if that isn’t enough to encourage you to enter, this competition has been created in partnership with the LTA: which offers a FREE online teacher training course, with resources and a £250.00 voucher, perfect for our members who are PE teachers!
Once you complete the virtual training (approx. 1 hour), your school will receive a £250.00 voucher to spend on tennis equipment OR 10 hours of team teaching with a local LTA Accredited coach! Find out more about LTA Youth Schools, and access the resources and teacher training here.

You'll be able to download this year’s KS1 and KS2 competition sheets, as well as gain access to other content, competitions, and giveaways.
2. Download the competition sheets and share them with your pupils.
You can do this in one of two ways…

Pupils submitting freehand entries must include a drawing of their tennis ball (KS1) or their tennis player (KS2) and provide answers to the questions in the relevant worksheet. Please remember to also include their name age, and school, as we can’t accept any entries without this information.
Alternatively, if your class have access to online drawing tools, we’d be happy to accept completely digital submissions too. Just ensure that all of the relevant information is included, as mentioned above. Bonus ICT research resources all about Wimbledon are also available for additional classroom fun, but you do not need to submit these as part of the competition.
