In a thrilling tournament held at Edgbaston Priory, Kings squash players have won the 'double' at the England Squash National Schools Squash Championships in the Under 14 and Under 16 Plate Competitions.
After earlier qualifying rounds, in the Under 14 competition, KCT beat Barnard Castle, Felsted School, and The Skinners' School in the final. In the Under 16 competition, KCT beat Bromsgrove School, Kings College Wimbledon, and then Tettenhall College in their final.
Special mentions go to Alex T and Theo L, who were members of both age group teams, and Thomas R - who also won this competition last year.
This year's competition, run by England Squash, has seen a significant 44% increase in the number of participating schools, with an impressive total of 110 schools fielding 266 teams.
With four courts and enviable facilities, squash continues to go from strength to strength at King's. Whether players have 30 minutes or two hours to play, squash will provide them with a burst of energy that is both invigorating and rewarding.
Squash is played all year round but is most popular during the Michaelmas and Lent Terms. Pupils can choose it as a full-time sporting activity or just play socially once a week. From engagement and development to high performance, King's provides the opportunity for all.
King's has a squash team in the Somerset Squash league and plays competitively against local clubs, home and away, on Monday evenings from September to March. There are also regular school matches, and for the high-performance players, King's enters the England Squash National Schools competition each year.
