At King Edward’s School we aim to help boys to develop as players whatever their standard. We hope that they will enjoy the game and that a significant number will pursue tennis well beyond school.

There are opportunities for boys to play and receive coaching in PE and games periods and enthusiastic players can opt for tennis for Friday afternoon activities from the Fourths onwards. Many boys participate in House Senior, Junior and Minor Tennis Competitions.

Talented players have the opportunity to play in school teams and we arrange coaching sessions at Edgbaston Priory to help them improve. We have regular fixtures for the 1st, 2nd, U15 and U13 teams. On two recent occasions, the school has reached the National Finals of the LTA Schools Year 9 & 10 competition (in 2021) and the Year 7 & 8 competition (in 2022). We also enter strong players into various tournaments and encourage boys to play at local tennis clubs.

If you would like to know more about tennis at King Edward’s School, or you are interested in arranging a fixture, please contact Mr Ben Coates at: bac@kes.org.uk
