Gonzaga has a proud tradition in schools’ tennis.
We have won the Leinster schools’ Cups on many occasions at each age level.
The school has five tennis courts. Our tennis facilities are amongst the best in Irish schools’ tennis.
Throughout the 1960s and 70s, Fr. Keane SJ built up tennis in the college from scratch to establish the school as one of the most respected tennis schools in the country. For many years now eight teams of seven players each have represented the college annually in Leinster competitions. Many other boys just play tennis for enjoyment. An annual highlight is the Past v Present tennis match in May. Enquiries about tennis at Gonzaga, may be directed to Mr Keenahan
