2014 British Open Practice day

As part of enrichment week 28 pupils along with Mr Rayner and Mr Quint ventured down to Royal Liverpool Golf Club (Hoylake) on Wednesday 16th July for the final practice day before this years championships.  Setting off early (6.45am) and arriving at the course at 9.30am, the pupils were able to walk the course in groups to watch the world best golfers, get autographs or pictures and take in all the different events happening within the tented villages on the course.  All the pupils had a great time and were amazed at how close they could get to the players, which is something most sporting events do not allow.  Who knows from this experience one day UVHS may be able to boast a former pupil as a major golf winner.
