Tennis

Foremarke has a developing reputation for tennis. Our facilities are good with four outdoor courts on site. We also have strong  links with James Rushby, Director of Tennis at Repton School and we sometimes use Repton's indoor courts in the winter.

We have a strong coaching team headed by Ben Rushby. Ben is an LTA Level 3 and Cardio Tennis Qualified Coach and the current U18 Derbyshire Girls' Team Coach and U14 Derbyshire Boys' Team Assistant Coach. He has represented Derbyshire at national level for over 12 years (both junior and senior) and was part of the Men's Derbyshire Team that became County Championship Divison 1 National Champions in 2015.

Pupils have the opportunity to develop their skills, understanding and enjoyment of the game.  Boys and Girls experience a block of tennis in the PE curriculum in Year 5, 6 , 7 and 8. Regular activities take place in the early evening during the summer months and the early part of the Michaelmas Term. Selected young players are able to access high performance programmes with the Director of tennis at Repton and his coaches during PE curriculum time.  Tennis squads train throughout the year with our coaching team on site at Foremarke and at Repton Senior School.
