Facilities and sporting success go hand-in-hand
October 21, 2021

Sporting success and exceptional facilities have gone hand-in-hand at Rydal Penrhos throughout the school’s illustrious history.

Rydal Penrhos has a long-standing tradition of sporting success throughout its history. The school has produced a wealth of international-calibre athletes over the years, who all built their early foundations as pupils before going on to achieve great things.

Whether it’s Wilf Wooller – widely regarding as one of the greatest all-around sportsmen the country’s ever produced – or the Prince of Centres Bleddyn Williams, Rydal Penrhos is proud of its sporting heritage which is continuing right up to the present day.

This was no more evident than during the summer, with Georgia Wilson securing two bronze medals at the Paralympic Games and Vicky Thornley also representing Team GB en route to securing fourth in the women’s single sculls rowing event having previously won a silver medal at the Rio Olympics.

All this comes from exceptional coaching delivered by the school’s staff team, who are constantly monitoring the progress of our aspiring athletes and developing programmes to enhance conditioning and overall performance in pursuit of reaching their respective goals.

Not only this, but our pupils benefit from first-class facilities to give them another major boost as they look to follow in the footsteps of those who’ve been so incredibly successful in years gone by.

These are not only used by pupils during school time, but Rydal Penrhos is delighted to host local clubs and teams who train with us on a weekly basis.

This also includes Welsh youth rugby, cricket, netball and hockey squads who hold residential training camps with us. The school’s incredible New Field sporting venue -which has its own pavilion – regularly hosts Cricket Wales youth matches and has seen iconic figures such as Andrew Flintoff attend.

Rydal Penrhos has a vast array of facilities, including a Sports Hall and Fitness Suite that can be used for netball, basketball and indoor cricket nets, with the astroturf surface providing a floodlit training area for pupils and clubs across the region to utilise.

The school also has its own outdoor cricket nets area, no fewer than five immaculate rugby pitches, seven outdoor tennis courts, two squash courts, four Eton Fives courts and a dedicated short game golf area for anyone wishing to hone their bunker, chipping or putting skills.

If that wasn’t enough, Rydal Penrhos has an RYA accredited Sailing and Water-Sports Centre as part of our campus and this is available to visiting groups.

Our instructors can put together taster sessions or a day on the water for our more qualified visitors, which has been part of the school’s history for more than 60 years and something pupils absolutely love all through the academic year.

The school’s sporting facilities are available for evening and weekend hire and during all school holidays. For more information email events@rydalpenrhos.com or call 01492 530155.
