Successful wins for the 1st XI, 2nd XI and U14A against Bede’s were great to see on Saturday. The 1st XI sit top of the HUDL league and have two important games against Shrewsbury and Repton coming up in the next 7 days. We also look forward to our ISFA 3rd round match against Royal Russell on Wednesday (a repeat of the final back in March). The U15A travel to Winchester for their ISFA Cup 3rd round fixture. Well done to all the footballers across all year groups since Exeat (Half Term) – it has been a wet few weeks but your tenacity and perseverance in training sessions and matches are certainly noticed – well done.
Charterhouse Basketball had their first fixture of the season on Tuesday 2 November with an U18 win against Hurtwood House, 67-25. The U18 team is notable in that it consists of both boys and girls, with the nine players hailing from seven different countries.
Fixtures continue with six more matches in the next five weeks.
This year's House swimming kicked off with the U16 Boys competition. It was a great turnout with every boy's House represented. The swimmers battled it out in individual and relay events in what turned out to be a close competition. This year’s winners were Robinites with 82 points followed by Saunderites, Bodeites and Verites with only 3 points separating the three Houses.
Congratulations also to John who broke two House swimming records in the 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle races.
After the recent fixture against The Montreal Racquets Club, there have been some great matches to kick off the School Singles. Alex showed good composure against the number one seed Amelia, especially in the final game- 15/11 was a good reflection of his consistency of shot in the rallies. On the other side of the draw, the stand out match was Charlie against Alex, the pair reaching one game all and twelve all. Alex won 15/12 in what was a very competitive match. Alex now meets Ollie in the next round.
