Home » Sport » Tennis

Tennis is thriving at Jeppe Girls. We have a senior and junior league that enjoy competing against other schools, with six teams ranging from ranked players to very social players. We participate in the Inter-High and Inter-Zonal tournaments which include both government and private schools.

In 2016 the first team ranked 14th out of 24 schools and the second team ranked 18th out of 23 schools at the Inter-High School’s tournament. At the Junior Inter High tournament in October, Jeppe placed 16th out of 27

The highlight of the season was the National Girls’ Festival that took place in Durban. The team did exceptionally well and although they didn’t win many of their matches they played their best and enjoyed the experience immensely..
