Clifton High School Alumni 140th Celebration

Former British number 1, world number 5 tennis player, Jo Durie, joined the Clifton High Alumni at their annual celebration in the Marquee at the weekend. Coincidently this year marks the 140th year of the Wimbledon Championships as well as our own, and Jo, a former Clifton High pupil, was happy to come in to School to mark the event with the Alumni.

She spoke about her time at the School and gave anecdotes about her highly successful tennis career, including her superb record against Stefanie Graf and her winning, lucky shot which secured the Wimbledon Mixed Doubles title! Jo is now a highly sought after coach and is a favourite on the commentary teams at the BBC and for Eurosport.
