St Patrick's College is well known for its strong representation in the BAS tennis competitions in all year levels.
Participation is so great that an in-house tennis competition is offered during term 1 each year.
The senior BAS tennis is also contested during term 1, held at the Ballarat Regional Tennis Centre. Having the competition here, allows participants access to the state of the art plexicushion courts.
Senior tennis is played on a Friday after school, while Intermediate tennis is contested on a Tuesday, in a home and away based competition. Junior tennis begins during term 4, also on a Tuesday.
St Patrick’s College is also well represented in the annual and prestigious McNeil Cup Singles Championships, held in term 1.
