U9 Netball

Our youngest netball team played on Friday 1st February against Norwich High School for Girls. It was a fixture that was designed to improve attacking and defending play and also to allow the teachers to coach the girls as the game went along. I was very proud of our pupils because they listened carefully and applied what I’d asked to their performance. Great effort, well done!

Tennis League Winners

We are delighted to report that both our Years 7 & 8 and our 15 and under teams have won their inter-school tennis leagues!

Last Monday we played two matches against Aylsham High School.

The Years 7 & 8 team of Rachel Y, Anna L, Cristina M-M and Ashlyn G won 4 – 2. The girls then clinched their league title last Tuesday in their final fixture versus Acle.

The 15 and under team also recorded a straight 6-0 victory at Aylsham – well done Hannah Y, Rebekah Y, Skyla-Grace M and Darcey W – and have won their league too!

A fabulous achievement: well done to all the girls and of course to coach Katie. We hope all you tennis fans are enjoying watching Wimbledon!

Rachel in Road to Wimbledon county quarter finals

Last Saturday Rachel Y (Year 8) represented HOHS at the county finals of the Road to Wimbledon 14 and Under Challenge County Finals,  held at East Anglia Tennis and Squash Club. Rachel played superbly, reaching the quarter-finals to finish in the top eight players in this age group in the county.  Well done, Rachel! She is pictured below with HOHS team mates following a victory at Hethersett Academy last month.

  • Did you know…?

The Road to Wimbledon 14 and Under Challenge is a unique competition which enables schools and tennis clubs throughout the country to inspire their 14 and Under players, with regional winners having the opportunity to play on the grass courts at Wimbledon in August.  Throughout the Summer Term, many singles matches were played at school: these established Rachel Y and Anna L (Year 8) as our school champions eligible to participate in the County Finals. Sadly, Anna was unable to attend the finals event.
