Short Half 2017


Boy playing fives


Fives is like squash played with gloved hands. It is a great, sociable sport played at schools, universities and clubs around the country. There are three main types of Fives: Rugby, Eton and Winchester, with the boys at Winchester competing in both the Ruby and Winchester codes and doing so very successfully.

Boys get a taster when they arrive and can play throughout Short Half and Common Time with the majority of matches scheduled in Common Time. We field teams at every age level playing the likes of Bradfield, Marlborough, Radley, Tonbridge and St. Paul's. For the social players that don't make it into the school teams there are house competitions and a singles ladder for them to enjoy. For those that excel there are opportunities to play against adult teams and in National competitions.

In the 2015/16 season Winchester Fives smashed all the club's records, winning 8 out of 13 trophies. Then, in the 2016/17 season we went one better winning 9 of the 11 trophies on offer.
