At Alleyn's we play Rugby Fives (rather than Eton or Winchester Fives), which is a little bit like playing in a squash court with a gloved hand rather than a racquet. We have a very strong Fives tradition and have a specialist coach who is a former National Champion and has a very good rapport with the pupils. There are introductory sessions for pupils from Year 7 and there are four lunchtime and after school practices per week in the Advent and Lent terms.
In recent years we have won both national singles and doubles championships making Alleyn's one of the most the most successful schools in the country. We have recently refurbished the courts meaning that we now play in heated indoor courts.
