Tennis has grown in popularity over the years at Hampton School and is one of our major sports options. The school has the benefit of six all-weather tennis courts – three acrylic and three painted tarmac courts.
We have had great successes in school tennis events and have nurtured a number of top class players.
Hampton School is proud to be able to offer tennis opportunities to players of all standards. The boys are able to play throughout the year in a range of squads, team events and organised competitions to suit their needs.
We have a dedicated tennis coach and team of staff supporting the boys’ tennis.
Coaching at Hampton runs year-round and is coordinated by Head of Tennis, Mr Daniel Phillips. In addition, Carl Jansen (an LTA registered coach) helps in the tennis sessions for our squads on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday lunch times.
We run lunchtime training squads throughout the year for all age groups and abilities and invitation squads for ‘Development’ and ‘Elite’ players.
Elite and performance players
Hampton School has a strong tradition of supporting boys in any area of excellence, and tennis is no exception. We have assisted boys who play at County, National and International levels.
Whilst there is no sports scholarship at Hampton, tennis is one of the options that a boy may present in his application for an All-Rounder Award.
