Tennis at RGS is played throughout the Summer term.
We run a number of teams for boys and girls including 1st, U15, U14, U13 and U12s. The boys play friendly fixtures against local schools including Caterham, Whitgift, Trinity, Charterhouse and RGS Guildford. The girls also play local friendly fixtures but also enter the Surrey Leagues where in recent years some teams have won through to the finals. Tennis can be chosen as an option in Games for Third Form upwards and we also run lunchtime practices for each year group on different days of the week. We also run beginners’ session after school, run by the senior students, and have a performance squad for both girls and boys.
A number of both boys and girls teams are entered into the Surrey Festival, the ISTA Championships at Eton and the LTA Team Tennis competition each year. The school has had several successes over the last couple of years: reaching the finals of the Plate competition at the ISTA Championships in 2016; runners-up the Surrey Festival and in the LTA Team Tennis in the U15 age group in 2017.
We have a good link with Redhill Tennis Club where we play some of our home matches and also have a professional coach who coaches from January through to the summer term.
