Girls' Tennis

Tennis is the major game for girls in the Summer Term. It has featured at the centre of the sporting programme for girls since they were first admitted into the Sixth Form and, since full coeducation, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of teams playing competitively. Squad coaching continues during the winter months and private coaching is available throughout the year.


The College has thirteen hard courts and twelve all-weather astroturf courts. There is also an indoor court in the Sports Hall . In addition, three boarding houses have their own courts.
