Tennis is played by all girls up to and including Year 10, and a good proportion of girls continue to play competitively or recreationally into the Sixth Form. For boys with a clearly identified ability, Tennis becomes an option from Year 9
The school regularly fields twelve girls’ teams on a Saturday, from the 1st VI to an under 14C team. Junior matches are played mid-week and the Boys’ teams will also compete on Saturday afternoons. Trent also aspires to achieve national success with entry in the National Schools’ Tennis Championships for the relevant age groups with both the Girls' and Boys' Teams. The school has achieved considerable success in these events, despite the Academy system that exists with the sport at school level. Trent has a number of boys and girls who represent the County at Tennis and the school actively supports individual progress in this area.
The introduction of a ‘Strength and Conditioning’ facility supports our pupils in developing the physical aspects of their game, when appropriate, in addition to the technical and tactical aspects learned through the Sports programme.
The coaching team is very experienced and the pupils benefit greatly from the focus on enjoyment, skill learning and game understanding. We continue to develop coaching expertise by helping staff to achieve LTA recognised qualifications and the school also employs a Tennis Professional, who builds upon the expertise of our teaching staff. This also provides the link between the school and local Clubs with many pupil enjoying playing at Club level.
Scholarships are available for Sport and we warmly welcome enquiries from students who are looking to enhance their Tennis development through Trent. Please contact Adam Benstead for further information about Tennis and Tennis opportunities at Trent College firstname.lastname@example.org
