There are several occasions when Old Rydalians, Old Penrhosians and Old Rydal Penrhosians return to the school throughout the year to take part in Old Boys/Girls teams competing against current school teams.
Founders’ Weekend, which takes place in mid-September, is one such weekend and over the course of the weekend the Old Girls’ Netball and Hockey teams play the 1st VII and 1st XI Girls Hockey team, the Old Boys’ Hockey team play the 1st XI Boys Hockey team and the Rydal Vikings rugby team play the 1st XV.
The focus of the weekend is all based around fun and friendship but all the fixtures are hotly contested.
Later in the year the 1st XI Football team play an Old Boys team and the Rydal Dolphins Cricket team enjoy a plethora of fixtures on New Field in the Trinity term, including a fixture against the current 1st XI.
Lastly, the Rydal Penrhos Golf day gives our budding golfers an opportunity to play against some more experienced players.
Recent leavers are always encouraged to get involved and it is always wonderful to see our current senior pupils making new friends and building their network of business contacts through sport.
Due to the nature of the Rydal Penrhos Community it is not uncommon for the occasional staff member to make a guest appearance in any of the teams too!
