We would be delighted to hear from ORs who would like to get involved in our current sporting calendar or, indeed, suggest and help organise new interest groups. Here is what we do now.
ORs vs the School 1st XI
This match is an all day fixture held on Reunion Day against the School 1st XI in late June or early July and places in the elite squad are hotly contested.
The Dylan Paris Memorial Trophy Match
Also on Reunion Day, we hold this special match in memory of OR Dylan Paris against the School 2nd XI. The OR team is usually co-ordinated by OR Christian Gore.
This is a new initiative organised by our 2017 leavers. They have entered a Surrey T20 competition and would love to hear from anyone who might be interested in playing.
OR Golf Society
We now have a thriving OR Golf Society which welcomes golfers at all levels and of all ages. Each year, we organise two or three golf days, usually at clubs where ORs are members, making for a more personal event. Past courses played include: Hartley Wintney, Farnham, Tyrrells Wood and Sunningdale.
Public Schools Old Boys' Golf Association (PSOBGA)
For the more serious OR golfing enthusiast, the Grafton Morrish tournament is the one to aim for: it's the major trophy of the Public Schools Old Boys' Golf Association (PSOBGA). Captained by ORs James Davey (Bristowe 1996) and
Stuart Robinson (Capel 2002), all team members have had a handicap of sub 8!

ORs vs the School 1st XI
Taking place on the last Thursday evening before the end of the Spring term, this ever-popular match is for former 1st team players who are up to taking on the energetic School XI. We usually have enough OR players to have a roll on, roll off system so no-one gets too exhausted.
Stephen Shiells Memorial Hockey v Staff
Held on the same evening as the 1st team game, the memorial Stephen Shiells match has grown and grown over the years with an enjoyable match being played against current Reed’s staff.
OR Ladies’ XI v Girls’ School XI
We are delighted that this game is now a permanent fixture, taking place in the first week of September. Our plan is to grow it so that we can put out two teams against the School. For more information, contact
After all these events, players are treated to either a curry supper at School with light refreshments or food and drink in The Running Mare.
OR VII v School VII
Usually held on the same evening as the Stephen Shiells Hockey, this fun match against the School is played for The Ross Plate, named in honour of OR Jerry Ross (Mullens 2008) who was instrumental in starting this initiative.
Recent Leavers v OR Invitational
On the second Saturday of September, we hold this annual match where the last year’s Captain of Rugby puts together his team from recent leavers and a former Reed's Captain (as nominated by our School Head of Rugby) gathers players from across the years. Held at Reeds Weybridge RFC, with friends and family welcomed to come and watch, this is a really enjoyable event played for the prestigious Captain’s Trophy!
Reeds Weybridge RFC
As ORs, we are lucky enough to be affiliated to Reed's Weybridge RFC
, which was borne out of the former Old Reedonians Rugby Club. With a meteoric rise through the leagues and a growing number of ORs playing across all teams, this is the ideal club join, no matter what your age or ability,

Public Schools Old Boys’ Tennis Association
An OR team takes part in this prestigious tennis tournament each year, playing for the beautiful D’Abernon Cup. There are two knock-out rounds and a semi-final, with the Final being held on the hallowed turf of the Lawn Tennis Association, Wimbledon. We often reach the semi-finals and in 2018 were D’Abernon Cup Champions.
Annual OR Tennis Scholars’ Reunion
Usually held in the last week before Christmas, this informal knock-about takes place in the indoor tennis centre with ORs and staff taking part. This is followed by drinks and food in a local pub.
