TOP 8 TENNIS TEAM 2019
This sport is available for boys who are in Years 7 and 8, and invited year 6 players.
The team plays mid-week fixtures against other independent schools throughout the year.
Please note that this is different to the interclub teams who play in the Canterbury Friday and Saturday competitions, in which the boys play for their chosen clubs, which have already started in Term 4 2018.
Can my son be placed on the school tennis ladder for the Top 8 Tennis Team and also be in a top cricket team for Medbury, or vice a versa?
No, Boys who trial for the Top 8 Tennis Team and also want to play cricket for Medbury, can do so, but they will be put into one of the parallel cricket teams. Boys who trial to play cricket on Saturdays are not eligible to be placed on the tennis ladder for the Top 8 tennis Team.
Trials for this team will begin before the school year commences for current pupils AND NEW BOYS. These will be held at on Monday 28 January, 2.45pm - 4.15pm and Tuesday 29 January, 3.30pm - 4.30pm
Once the trials are completed, two School Tennis Challenge Ladders will be created. One will be the A squad of approximately 8 -10 players, from which the Top 8 will be selected for school fixtures. The second will be the B squad, which allows boys to challenge other players throughout Terms 1 & 4, with the goal of moving up the ladder and possibility an invite into the A squad.
