The philosophy of tennis at King Edward's is to help boys to develop as players whatever their standard. We hope that they will enjoy the game and that a significant number will pursue the game well beyond school. There are opportunities for boys to play and receive coaching in PE and Games periods and enthusiastic players can opt for tennis for Friday afternoon activities from the Fourths onwards. Many boys participate in house senior, junior and minor tennis competitions.
Talented boys have the opportunity to play in school teams. We have regular fixtures for the 1st, 2nd, U15 and U13 teams. In 2012, the U13 team reached the quarter finals of the national schools championship. This is the fifth year in a row that the school has been represented at this stage of the competition. Senior boys are invited to compete for the Simon Booth trophy which is our internal tennis championship. We enter strong pairs into various schools tournaments and encourage boys to play at local tennis clubs.
