Stonyhurst College is delighted to have eight newly qualified Tennis Leaders who will be able to pass on their teaching skills to the younger pupils at Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall and Hodder House. The eight boys involved have had regular training every Thursday and are pictured above with their new t-shirts and certificates. Congratulations to all of them!

The College Syntax, Poetry and Rhetoric years tennis team has just reached the last 16 of the National School Mixed Doubles championships. The last 16 match will be on Wednesday 9th January. We are waiting to find out if we are away or home and the names of our opponents.

We held a great tennis tournament for all the staff on Tuesday evening December 4th (Picture attached) the winners were Jess Pye and Mark Goodwin. Some of the tennis shots played during the evening were incredible and everybody involved thoroughly enjoyed themselves. More tennis events will follow in 2019 and thanks to Jess for helping to organise the event.

We have recently opened a new Head Tennis shop at the Tennis Dome office (Picture attached). We are able to offer all staff, pupils and parents tennis rackets, tennis shoes, racket bags and tennis clothes at low prices. Orders can be placed by calling the Director of Tennis, David Shaw, on 01254 827307.
