In addition to the academic curriculum, sporting development is an integral part of a boy’s school life. One of the sports on offer is Tennis and I would encourage your son to participate in it. It is a sport for life, extremely sociable and is a big asset in personal development.
Tennis for 1st – 3rd years will be on Tuesdays after school for 1 hour and Tuesday at big lunch. Tennis for 4th – 6th years is from 4:45pm – 5:45pm on Tuesdays.
School teams are also a great way for the boys to take part in the inter schools’ competition which has seen Castleknock do very well over last few years reaching many finals, including winning the Leinster Minor and Junior finals, where we had three 1st year teams participating in the 2019-20. We also do an internal ranking list which is a good way for boys to stay competitive in the run up to league. There is an extra cost of €150 which will cover registration fees to Leinster and All-Ireland competitions. Application forms for badminton can be found in reception.
