June 2019 Sport Round-up

Junior Mini World Cup

Over the past few weeks Junior children have competed in a mini World Cup competition in celebration of the Women's World Cup in France. There was a wonderful atmosphere across all the competitions, and it was great to see both boys and girls competing in the same teams together and having lots of fun along the way. There were some impressive passages of play and goals that were certainly World Cup worthy. Not only was the standard of football excellent, but the children did themselves proud by displaying sportsmanship of the highest calibre. Well done to all involved!

Year 4 winners – Germany

Year 5 winners - For the first time in history the World Cup was shared between the USA and hosts, France.

Year 6 winners – France.

U15 Invitational Rugby Tournament at Dulwich College

A huge congratulations to our U15 rugby team who competed in the Dulwich College Invitational Rugby tournament in June. The team played some incredible rugby winning all their matches and finished as the champions, in what was a fantastic day of rugby. There were six teams competing, including a travelling team from Shanghai, China which created a competitive and quality environment for the boys. Tanglin were dominant from the start, demonstrating superb sevens play and scored several quality tries, whilst only conceding one on the day. Congratulations to all the boys for their efforts.


The climbing team had a great morning at PumpFest, entering the Team category meaning that our 16 climbers competed in groups of four all trying to climb each boulder problem. It was Kit and Will's first competition and a great opportunity for them to climb in front of a huge crowd. This happy event was matched with the sad departure of George and Tim for whom this was their last competition.

Singapore Open Nationals

We had 26 swimmers racing over a week at the Singapore Open Nationals - the final meet of the year for most of our team. We saw school records and personal best times broken. Our men's and women's relay teams achieved 9th and 6th place in the 4x100m freestyle. Katie and Alistair both achieved top 10 finishes for multiple races. Well done all!
