Spring Term Sports

Elmhurst School for Boys

8th April 2019 | Sport

What a busy time the boys had this term with plenty of sport being played both at club and school level.

Early in the term, the U11 boys competed with our friends at Old Palace School in the Croydon Schools’ Mixed Hockey Quick Sticks Tournament at the Senior Old Palace School in Croydon. Elmhurst went on to qualify for the finals at Croydon High School and ended up coming fourth overall. 

The boys have also been introduced to squash this year and have enjoyed weekly Sunday coaching sessions at Beckenham Squash Club. Both the U11s and U9s competed at the Croydon Schools’ Squash Festivals at The Purley David Lloyd Centre where both teams clearly demonstrated how beneficial the weekly coaching has proven to be.

Badminton has also been a popular sport to play this term and all the boys have improved so quickly with their weekly training. The Croydon Schools’ Badminton festival was incredibly popular with no less than 30 Elmhurst boys taking part.

Our Year 2 pupils also got in on the act this term and were introduced to their very first competitive tournament at Hawthorns School. With parents cheering from the sidelines, the boys improved with every match they played. They will be looking forward to their ISA tournament at Lingfield School when they return after the Easter break.

Meanwhile, the U11s were privileged to be invited to a Crystal Palace charitable event at Trinity School, where they had the opportunity to have a picture taken with the Premiership Trophy. 

Perhaps the two most memorable events of this term were the U11 invitation to the ISA and Merchant Taylor’s Rugby Festivals and the two Gifted and Talented sessions which took place at Trinity School and St Mary’s University in Twickenham - events which the children who were lucky enough to be involved in, will never forget.
