Tennis at St Paul’s
Tennis is a popular summer sport at St Paul’s and the objective of the tennis programme is to develop the skills of both the elite players and those students who wish to simply play tennis socially.
To that end, St Paul’s provides tennis courts of international quality and coaches to meet the needs of the different ability groups.
