Sports at Evelyn Baring High School

There were excellent facilities for playing sports at Evelyn Baring High School: tennis courts, a basketball court, a football field, swimming pool and indoors there was table tennis. There was a lot of enthusiasm for sports and the boarding students would organise themselves in their spare time.

The swimming pool especially was very popular and impromptu water polo games were played with goal posts fashioned from retort stands and clamps borrowed from the Science lab: it was overseen by the science teacher.

The boys organised a table tennis tournament among themselves, playing singles and doubles until there was a clear winner. The Inter-School Sports Day, attended by students from schools in the south of Shiselweni District was held each year in Nhlangano; it was a big event and Evelyn Baring students would perform very well in running, long- and high-jump events.
