Tennis at King's Hall
Tennis is played at King's Hall in PE lessons during the Summer Term, from Year 3 to Year 8, on six astroturf pitches and 4 hard courts - enclosed in the former walled garden. Children can use these courts in their break times and in games sessions.
Regular fixtures are played by our girls' Under 13 and Under 12 pairs against other Prep Schools, along with entry into the AEGON Under 13 Team Tennis competition by both boys and girls - where we have enjoyed much success and hotly contested matches over the past few years. Girls' Under 10 and Under 11 pairs are also encouraged to play matches against local schools once they are capable.
For the younger pupils from Year 1 to Year 4, short tennis coaching is available all year round by keen and well qualified coaches, either in our sports hall or on the outdoor courts during the Summer Term. And for those more enthusiastic about the sport, Blackbrook Tennis Centre in Taunton provide additional specialist coaching.
