Winter Sports


Teacher in Charge:Mrs R Nieuwoudt
Badminton Badminton is a great, tactical game – almost like playing chess at high speed. Learners are encouraged to participate as it is also a very good stress reliever. Practices are on Mondays from 14h30 until 16h30 in the Student Centre. Matches will take place on Thursdays from 14h30 until 18h00. Matches will be played at the John Tyres Hall in Kenilworth against participating schools in the southern suburbs. Our coach, Andries Malan, is a very talented South African player, currently ranked first in mixed doubles as well as men’s doubles. Practice racquets and shuttles are available on request. Prospective players are most welcome to join us during the winter season.
