Sport has a long and proud tradition at Melbourne Grammar and our aim is to give every student the experience of competing in inter-School and inter-House sports.
Our programmes cater for all levels of performance, at the same time providing pathways for the elite who want to excel. Saturday inter-school sport is compulsory, and access to the best possible coaches and facilities enhances the boys' sporting skills, physical fitness and makes the experience a lot of fun. Melbourne Grammar takes part in the Associated Public Schools (APS) sporting competition over three seasons - Summer, Winter and Spring.
As well as APS sports, we have teams competing in Snow Sports and Rugby Union.
Some teams tour overseas, including Snow Skiing to Italy, Soccer and Rugby to New Zealand, Cricket and Tennis to England and Water Polo to the USA.
The Strickland Physical Education Centre has a gymnasium with facilities for volleyball, basketball, badminton and table tennis, four tennis courts, a weight training room and an indoor heated swimming pool. Rowing is organised around the School's boathouse on the Yarra River.
Melbourne Grammar students also use the School's sports complex at Edwin Flack Park. The park is named after the School's first Olympian and Australia's first gold medal winner, Edwin Flack, who attended the first Games of the modern era in 1896 at Mount Olympus in Greece. Edwin Flack Park has nine tennis courts, an AFL football/cricket ground, hockey field and soccer ground. Our sportsmen regularly use the well-maintained playing fields and tracks around nearby parks and gardens.
