Fantastic to see so many fixtures restarting and some excellent performances in cricket, netball and tennis.
Our senior team played their first fixture in well over a year against St Lawrence College.
Our 1st XI beat Cranbrook in the first round of the Area Cup. Our U14A side beat Simon Langton in the second round of the Kent Cup. Our U15A side also beat St Olave’s (B team) in the Kent Cup round one. Our junior girls had their first ever fixture versus Radnor House.
Our girls 1st team competed at a very tough Ardingly 7s tournament on Sunday. This is their first competitive football in well over a year.
Due to the weather, we held an exciting indoor volleyball tournament in the sports hall with the Upper Sixth. The atmosphere was wonderful and it was an incredibly enjoyable experience for all.
Well done to Casper Hoving and Alex Dobak who played some fantastic games against Reeds and showing a brilliant example of sportsmanship.
In the first fixture in over a year for our U16A netball side beat Beechgrove Academy 35-34.
Students won ten and drew one out of 17 fixtures versus Benenden and Eastbourne.
In the Independent Schools League, our U14, U15 and U16 boys’ teams beat Hampton and St Paul’s to reach the finals next weekend.
Our senior boys’ team beat Kent College 7-6 in a very exciting match after a shoot-out, showing great determination to hang in there. Our junior teams had their first set of fixtures versus Epsom winning 6 and drawing 1 out of 7.
Our tennis players enjoyed an excellent coaching and Q&A session with former tennis pros Danny Sapsford and James Auckland which kickstarted our fundraising efforts ahead of the 24-hour tennis marathon in September.
