DSCN3037.jpgCompetitions and Fixtures

Across both sexes and all our major sports – football, rugby, cricket, netball, hockey, swimming, tennis and athletics –  Harrodian teams are increasingly on the up. Our well-drilled, highly motivated teams are playing better and competing more strongly year by year, both in our programme of regular local fixtures and in regional and national competitions. Our First XI Hockey surpassed expectations by coming fourth in the Under 18s 4th tier National finals day (read a special report on the First 11's Hockey year by following this link) and our First XV Rugby had a strong season which gathered momentum as it went.

Trips and Tours 

Extracurricular sports trips and tours are a popular and special part of at Harrodian life, bringing both lasting pleasure and real value to participants. Our trip programme this year has ranged, for example, from our regular ski trip to Val D'Isere to tennis training in Barcelona and netball in Malaga, below. All our trips combine intense tuition and practice with team-building communal activities that ensure that their educational value is maximised.
