Did anyone get a chance to play tennis at KBGS? I remember only once playing at the girls grammar school. But I left after the fifth form. Was it a regular option in year six?

And what about Oakbank? Did it become part of PE later? Did the new school have tennis courts?

Enjoy Wimbledon!

Years at KBGS e.g. 1958-1964 (optional) 54-59

Re: Tennis

Oakbank had a tennis court (possibly two, I'm not sure). I think, however, that it was like the front room at the house I was born in - only there to show to visitors.

Re: Tennis

Perhaps, Gareth, you needed to stay on at the Girls' Grammar instead of leaving after the fifth form!
