11 Oct -Fives update

Eton_fives

St. Olave’s achieved a spectacular Fives result last week, away against Eton College. Sixteen pairs competed in a series of best of five set matches. Most of the matches were of a very even standard with roughly half of the contests running into the fourth set. What is outstanding is that on this occasion almost every Olavian pair managed to win, recording our best ever victory against Eton College; 15 matches to 1. To give some context, Eton College runs a massive Fives programme with a full-time professional coach and enormous numbers being trained up on their 16 courts. This result is a real testament to the dedication and determination of our students, and their coaches – well done indeed.
