Yup, it was a tennis court. The back avenue was a universal pitch for rugby kicking practice (usually followed intermittently by window-breaking-practice as the ball hit the houses etc.), tennis (both against the walls by the back railings, and on the marked-out courts)

That is weird - thanks for the additional info though. I've contacted Crockfords online, to request any additional info and for them to investigate the missing entry. I'm suprised that the info was that out-of-date (usually Crockford's have been pretty good) and for the entry to be missing altogethe...

Fair point. I guess that we as Old Blues should be extremely concerned Edit - by which I mean care a lot) about the activities of the school, as that's what we're supporting if we financially (or otherwise) contribute - otherwise we're perpetuating something which could be damaging, or at least not ...

It's a real shame when someone's had such a rough time at CH. I look back on it, and I had a very rough time at a couple of point there, but overall look back on it with fondness and affection. It certainly set me up for life, giving me an ability to get on with all levels/ages of people. I'm sure t...

Why's this important? I guess I'm asking because CH relies on the loyalty of ex-pupils to fund and support its future. Having received a subsidised education from a charity organisation, do the ex-pupils feel a loyalty to it to fulfill "The Charge" later in life? If the answer to the above is NO, th...

Loyalty - to CH, or to your Uni/HE?

A thought which was mentioned as part of the CH Club discussions was whether CH Pupils are beginning to feel more of a loyalty for their University/College, than for Christ's Hospital, once they've left? Would be interested in your votes, and in your opinions on this? Personally, I feel absolutely n...
