A Round-Up of Sport

Read all the latest updates from the Sports Department


In hockey, the boys' 1st XI won the England Hockey Tier 2 National Championship Final beating Bedford on penalty strokes in a very tight match at the Lee Valley National Hockey Centre on Thursday 2 May.

They reached the final having defeated Merchant Taylors' 3-0 in the semi-final – the side they lost to last in year’s final. This year it ended 1-1 at full time. It and was a fantastic match, if at times a little nail biting, with an excellent goal from Raph Boulanger in the first half, and brilliant goalkeeping from Elliot Clarke throughout, but especially in the final two minutes where two penalty corners and a penalty stroke were kept out to take the game to penalty strokes.


In tennis, Charterhouse won its recent Junior ISL group with comprehensive wins over Wellington, Epsom and Cranleigh. Thyme Thirapornsawad won an impressive 11 out of 12 sets – a truly outstanding effort.


In cricket, the 1st XI continue their successful run with a hard fought victory over Westminster.

Charterhouse has also hosted two recent prep school cricket masterclasses welcoming former England Cricketers Lydia Greenway and Mark Ramprakash to pass on their international experience and coaching tips.


Athletics has seen Charterhouse host the recent Waverley School Trials.


In Rowing, it was a successful event at Eton Dorney with the J15 Double scull of Rufus Henderson and Rory McIsaac winning a gold medal against a big field of entrants.


In shooting, success continues at a pace with Gold (Alex Zu-Zayn-Wittgenstein), Silver (Nick Shutt) and Bronze (Gus McLellan) positions in the 11 Brigade Target Rifle Competition held at Stoney Castle Ranges.

James Ingham has been selected for the UK Cadet Rifle Team tour to Jersey and Charterhouse have also won the CCRS .22 Team Competition (formerly known as the Country Life). This national small-bore shooting competition was last won by Charterhouse in 1938.
