Bishops is one of the leading schools in South Africa as far as sport is concerned and our reputation for sporting excellence is world-wide. In keeping with the ethos of our school, we believe that sport plays a vital role in the development of young men. In particular, we believe that participation in a team sport enhances the educational experience. To this end, it is a school rule that all boys must play an official school sport during both summer and winter terms.

The College has a rich golfing history.

Old Diocesans who made a name for themselves include Simon Hobday, Michael Watermayer, Dorian Wharton-Hood, Peter Sauerman, Davis Wren and Brian Lefson.

Michael Watermayer was President of SA Golf. Paul Sauerman is the most respected sporting Historian in the country - his golf museum is worth a visit - possibly the best in the country. Brian Lefson was a Springbok golfer and President of the WPGU.

Once every four years, our golfers embark on an overseas tour. Added to this, there are other smaller tours and festivals that we attend on a yearly basis.
