Tennis

Tennis is an all year round sport here at Blundell’s and during the last twelve months has been expanding into three development programmes, the pupil programme currently has over 100 pupils receiving weekly lessons from the team of coaches, the popular adult programme has weekly match-play style sessions and our holiday programme has seen tennis coaching camps run, including the ever popular Christmas Camp. To find out more about any of the three development programmes, please contact James Hope (Head of Tennis).

Tennis is the main sport for girls during the summer term and is becoming increasingly popular with our international pupils. Boys may take tennis as an option, although below Year 11 this is only available to those not required to play cricket currently. Our astro pitches and hardcourt area transforms into 30 tennis courts to ensure all pupils have the best opportunity to develop their tennis during the term with the experienced and dedicated coaching staff.

2018 saw the U15 and U13 compete in the LTA Team Tennis competition and both teams were crowned as winners. This year we have increased the amount of teams competing in the National Competition and have a very exciting and full fixture list for all year groups. We expect to be able to not only offer A and B, but also now C team fixtures to ensure all pupils have a chance to represent the school and start to develop a passion for the game.

This Easter some of our top tennis players will be touring Spain, the first ever tennis tour, where they will be receiving international elite coaching and representing the school at some of the national tennis venues. These are exciting times for tennis here at Blundell's.
