The Tildesley Tennis Shield competition was first held in 1918 and since that time has become the most coveted trophy in school tennis. This tennis competition encourages girls to play for their school rather than for themselves, thereby encouraging team and school spirit. Between 12 and 32 girls compete for the trophy each year.
St Catherine's has steadily climbed the competition ladder coming fourth in the Tildesley in 2015, equal to our highest ever placing. The launch of the St Catherine's Tennis Project will enable us to provide resistance training equipment and coaching, as well as high performance tennis coaching. The quality and quantity of training will ensure the Tildesley squad is best prepared for competition going forward.
