The Tennis programme is run by staff and Old Boys, ably assisted by the Firsts Coach, Mr A. Dbelja (a fully accredited professional coach). Using their knowledge of the game and ability to relate well to the boys of varying ages, a programme has been developed which includes fitness, footwork, cross training and naturally, skills. Each of these facets being applied in a very tennis specific way.
Further to training as a team, boys are also encouraged to undertake private coaching lessons. This is an invaluable opportunity for the boys to get more personal attention and fine tune their strokes.
In addition to the ISA competition held in the winter season boys are encouraged to trial for representative honours at both ISA and CIS level. St Patrick’s has a proud tradition of representation at both levels.
In 2012 St Patrick’s College was victorious across Divisions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 winning the ISA Tennis Schools Shield.
