Tennis at Haileybury is played competitively by both boys and girls in all year groups and is the major summer sport for girls.In addition to the College's own tennis facilities, pupils also enjoy membership of Legends Tennis UK, an indoor and outdoor facility based on the campus offering year-round access to Grand-Slam quality facilities, expert tuition and coaching.
Tennis at Haileybury is a fun, exciting and challenging sport where boys and girls are pushed to raise their game to the highest level while also thriving in the enjoyment of this quintessentially summer sport.
For pupils wishing to learn and develop their tennis skills - both mentally and physically - Haileybury offers top class facilities which are available all year round.
For both boys and girls, Haileybury puts out three senior teams as well as A and B (occasionally C) teams in all the junior years. Recently boys and girls have also come together in mixed doubles fixtures.
There are opportunities for involvement in team and individual competition and Haileybury enters numerous schools competitions throughout the year including the School Aegon Cup, LTA National Championships, LTA Senior Students and ISTA championships.
We also run annual mixed tennis tours (this year to Vale Do Lobo in Portugal) as well as a senior and under fifteen pre-season tournament.
The College also has a diverse and highly competitive fixture list where we have block fixtures against schools such as King's Canterbury, Oundle, Wellington and The Lees.
Our top boy and girl players benefit from tennis coaching throughout the winter. This is available to elite players who play throughout the year. Tennis players who play the major winter sports are also given opportunities to train in the winter terms.
Central to our offering is our link with Legends Tennis UK, an LTA Performance Centre with indoor and outdoor courts, set within the College campus.
This state-of-the-art facility combines Grand-Slam quality indoor courts with the latest technology in playing surfaces to provide one of the best school training facilities available anywhere in the UK.
Pupils have access to a team of highly experienced LTA coaches who deliver individual training throughout the year to players from performance through to developmental levels.
All pupils qualify for Haileybury membership at Legends Tennis UK with programmes and individual support available to players during the school day where space and time is available.
