Queen Anne’s Sports News

Monday 18th June 2018

A round up of all the latest sports news.


We start with some exciting news on the swimming front. Congratulations go to Harriet S who has qualified in the 200m backstroke for the English Nationals taking place in Sheffield on 4th August. This is Swim England’s biggest domestic swimming event of the year, where top ranked club swimmers in each event, based on performances in competition between March and May, are invited to compete.


Moving onto cricket news. Those of you who know Romilly Hd in the 6th will be aware that she is a formidable fast bowler.

We took a Year 8 cricket team to play against Cranford House early in the week. This was for many of the girls their first cricket match. Later in the week we took a team composed of year 7s to year 10s. We lost the first match, but got revenge in the second match!

This weekend the Reading Amateur Regatta took place. It’s popularity and importance today stem from its date immediately before Henley entries close. This is what the Regatta looked like in its first year in 1842.

The regatta was started three years after Henley in a local fit of “anything-Henley-can-do, Reading-can-do-better”, the same course has been used ever since. Queen Anne’s Boat Club had two boats entered, racing over 1500m in preparation for Women’s Henley next weekend.

Sofia has been an invaluable member of the Queen Anne’s lacrosse team, having scored many admirable goals and has lifted all of our spirits when the weather has been bad or the score-line has not been in our favour with her famous grin! We will miss Sofia a great deal and wish her all the best back home in Spain.
