The boys also had the opportunity to speak to the Princes and pose for photos at the event attended by 300 guests and supporters of Greenhouse Sports to mark the opening of the new state of the art sport and community centre for young people in London.

Samuel said: “We spoke to Prince William & Prince Harry about how Greenhouse Sports had impacted our lives and what we would be doing if we weren’t doing sport. We also talked about how other people can relate to sport.”

In March, Ernest Bevin College was named the top British school for judo following a haul of five medals at the British Schools Judo Championship. Greenhouse Sports deliver judo, table tennis and volleyball at the school in Tooting through high quality sports coaching and mentoring, which in turn raises academic performance and achieves positive behavioural change amongst participants. This year all three sports have made an impact in their national competitions: The Under 18, Under 16 & Under 15 Volleyball teams all qualified for the national finals and the U16 Table Tennis came third in the National Table Tennis Team finals.
