Sports

 

All boys at Sunningdale have the opportunity to play a wide variety of games. The major sports are Football in the Michaelmas Term, Rugby in the Lent Term and Cricket in the Summer Term.

The advantage of being in a small school is that almost all the boys get to represent the school at some level. This sense of inclusion is invaluable in building confidence, self esteem and team spirit.

In addition to the three major sports, boys also play tennis, squash, Eton fives, golf, table tennis, athletics and cross country against other schools. Fives has been played at Sunningdale since at least 1892 and we have achieved great success in the Prep Schools Eton Fives Tournament over the years.

There is a heated indoor swimming pool which enables us to offer the boys swimming all year round, as well as a 7 hole golf course in the grounds.

Our sports hall is used all year round for basketball, indoor hockey, fencing, judo and air rifle shooting.  There are also two indoor cricket nets.

Other activities offered to the boys include horse riding, polo, water polo, chess, a model railway, cooking, model making, snooker, board games, clay pigeon shooting and bushcraft survival weekends.
