The Oakhill College Tennis players went on a Tour to Cape Town from 13–16 October 2011. The team consisted of 6 girls and 6 boys and were accompanied by Mrs Le Fleur and Mrs Hyde.
The team stayed at Mountain Manor Backpackers in Gardens and had a practice on Friday morning before visiting Canal Walk and the Waterfront . Both matches played against Bergvliet High School on Saturday morning and against Westerford High School in the afternoon were won by Oakhill. On Sunday morning Oakhill lost to Somerset College and were hosted to lunch before returning to Knysna.
The Player of the Tour was awarded to Joshua Pama who playing at no 1 position, won 7 of his 8 matches followed closely by Ivan van der Sijde who won 6 of his 8 matches.
A Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles match was played by each player against Westerford High and Somerset College.
Results of matches as follows : Oakhill beat Bergvliet High 12/2; beat Westerford High 16/8 and lost to Somerset College 2/22 ; the score was not a true reflection of the result with Somerset having to work hard for their victory.
A great tour was had by all and the College Tennis players did Oakhill proud both on and off the court.
