Tennis is a sports option for the boys and the major game for girls in the Summer Term, when they are coached by staff and LTA coaches. Private coaching is available throughout the year, and the keenest players have a weekly winter session. There is a pre-season training camp in Portugal for the Remove. The U15 girls won the county cup last year, and the girls’ overall win ratio for the season currently stands at 84%.
Tennis is a hugely popular option for all year groups, both competitively and socially.
The College has 13 hard courts which have been recently resurfaced and 12 Astroturf courts in addition to an indoor court in the Sports Hall. Three boarding houses also have their own courts.
At Marlborough, 14 girls teams & 12 boys teams play in major block fixtures every Saturday and exeat Thursday.
