Michaelhouse offers a vibrant sport programme with a choice of 14 sport options. We are fortunate to enjoy some of the finest sporting facilities in the country.
The school has 12 playing fields including two water based hockey astroturfs, seven turf cricket pitches, a dedicated cricket oval, an athletics track, eight tennis courts, a six-court squash complex with three glass-backed courts, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, a 25m x 25m heated swimming pool, a 30m x 25m water polo pool, a state-of-the-art High Performance Centre, a golf driving range and a dam for canoeing enthusiasts.
To assist with planned fitness programmes, the High Performance Centre is equipped with professional weight training and aerobic equipment. Specific fitness programmes are designed for the boys and overseen by the specialist services of a Sport Scientist and Biokineticist. This provides each boy with the opportunity to develop physically in accordance with his sports’ demands and to excel in his chosen fields.
The boys’ sport talents are acknowledged at zonal, provincial and international level, with interschool fixtures played at first league level. Michaelhouse has produced in excess of 120 sportsmen who have played at international level.
