#OurBigOutdoors Opening on Tuesday 17th April 2018!

Alongside Team GB Hockey and Dame Helena Morrissey, we will officially open the new outdoor sporting facilities at Tonbridge Grammar School on Tuesday 17th April 2018. Invitations are being circulated.

Our long held dream of outdoor sporting opportunities is coming true thanks to a shared vision and overwhelming support and generosity from within and far beyond the school gates. We are profoundly grateful to our students, staff, parents, alumni, and friends of the School.

The facilities include a floodlit all-weather pitch, long jump, a sprint track, cricket nets, and two further levelled and drained grass playing areas.

Some essential items of equipment have been gifted by our contractor Agripower and with special personal help from former parents and current parents Alison and Sarah, we have already received practice tennis balls from Lawn Tennis Association, two tennis nets from Wimbledon Foundation, and a storage container has also been purchased at a discount to keep kit and equipment dry and safe when not in use.

We receive good news every day and just before the half term break we received a generous award from The Garfield Weston Foundation, which will seed fund the final piece of the project jigsaw, the pavilion to host training and matches and our sport outreach community work.

There are so many people to thank. We are profoundly grateful and look forward to celebrating together.

If you would like to get involved or learn more about our ‘finishing sprint’ please get in touch and see our  #OurBigOutdoors fundraising appeal.
