About the Club

For 130 years, the Old King’s Club has been the principal way for alumni of King's College School to keep in touch with each other and with their old teachers. The Club is run for and by its members to promote the “honour and well-being” of the whole King’s community. Social activities include dinners and get-togethers at the School, in London and further afield. The Club runs successful rugby, football, golf, tennis, shooting and other sporting sections. The annual OKC Careers Evening gives members the chance to offer advice to current pupils and to meet old friends.

The Club is owned by its members and is independent of the School, but works closely with the King's Association (Development Office), the Friends of KCS and Arthur Wellesley Society.

Membership of the Club is open, free of charge, to all former King’s pupils.

The first match of 2017 was the Triangular Match against our old foes Kingston Grammar School OB’s and Raynes Park Former Pupils at Surrey Downs GC on 11th April. We had a very strong team of ten players with three 12 handicappers, a 13, two 15’s, a 17, two 18’s and a 19.

The Old King’s Club scoring was very good – our best player being Richard Burgess (OK 1965), who played consistently with 20 points out and the same back (total 40). Two of the KGS players also scored 40 points but one scored 19 out and 21 back so just edged Richard Burgess on countback and took home the Martin Fielding Memorial Cup.

The longest drive competition was divided into two parts and Neil Price (OK 1969) won the 0-18 handicap prize and Micky King (OK 1959) won the 19+ handicap prize. The team prize for the best five scores resulted in a tie between ourselves and the KGS team both with 183 points. To decide on a winner for the Raynes Park Cup, the organiser took into consideration the next three scores and our strength in depth meant that we were the overall winners by a good margin.

The Old King’s Club’s final scores were Richard Burgess (OK 1965) 40, Andrew Copeman (OK 1968) and Lance Condon (OK 1969) 37, Fred Grover (OK 1974) 36, Neil Price (OK 1969), Micky King (OK 1959) and myself 33, Chris Diacon (OK 1967) 31 and Jonathan Howitt (OK 1978) and Philip Gregory (OK 1972) completed the team with very respectable 28 points.

On Saturday 7th January a netball tournament was held where three teams of OKC girls competed alongside three school teams.

We had over 25 OKC girls from all cohorts that have left the school. The standard of netball was very high considering the weather conditions and that some of the girls had not played together for some years. The event was highly competitive and it was fantastic to see the girls return back to school. Many of the girls couldn’t believe the changes and additions to the buildings, the quadrangle and the netball courts. The 2013 leavers came runners-up of the tournament (they had their whole original 1st team) narrowly losing out to the current 1st VII on points. This will become an annual event being held on the first Saturday in January.
