With over nineteen dedicated tennis courts and a further nine from the astro turf, Ampleforth boasts excellent tennis facilities.

As such, we are able to provide lots of students the opportunity to play quality tennis in the summer months. Our courts are also floodlit so there are chances to play throughout the day, night, and year.

Ampleforth has, over the last ten years, consistently produced excellent tennis results at both the elite and participation levels. We are one of only a handful of schools who can put out fifteen couples per age group. We compete at all age groups, boys, girls and mixed levels. We play friendly matches every Saturday in the summer and enter national tournaments at U15 and U18 levels throughout the year.

We have a tennis coach available to students for individual lessons and tennis activities throughout the year encouraging all players to enjoy the social and competitive elements of tennis. Old Amplefordian Tennis and House Tennis competitions are highly competitive but the most sought after accolade is the Moody Tennis Trophy. The competition for this is held at Exhibition Weekend, where parents compete with their children to win the title.
