“King's is a place where elite sports players are able to thrive. ”
Why Play Tennis?
The coaching programme caters for girls and boys of all abilities, from the year-round tournament player, to players with little experience. Everyone is encouraged to play and improve their tennis. The aim of the programme is to develop their mental, technical, tactical and practical skills required for the game and to enjoy the challenge of competition, both within a school and outside of school friendly competition setting.
Specialist coaching is available six days a week, aiming to develop our tennis players throughout the year and during their time at King's in both singles and doubles. We also have our own indoor facility and access to nearby courts if required to further enable us to offer a year-round programme.
Private coaching is also available at King's with one-to-one sessions with a variety of coaches available. These sessions are tailored to level and need. At present there are also three group performance sessions and three group 'early morning' training sessions running weekly, at no additional cost.
As a school, we compete annually in the prestigious Independent Schools Tournament held at Eton College (for both boys and girls) in the last week of the Summer Term. In addition to higher level competitions, we also run fixtures throughout the year against other independent schools and local clubs in the Somerset and Devon area.
School singles and doubles tournaments, inter-house matches, competitions for pupils and parents, as well as OA fixtures also take place at carious times throughout the year.
We have a number of pupils who play at national and county level, who work with our coaching team weekly to develop their skills and prepare them for future competitions.
Two former pupils, Jordan Clayton and Pearllan Cipriano, left King's after Sixth Form to join universities in the USA on Tennis Scholarships. Both players attended King's Hall School before joining King's College.
