Why MLC > Co-Curriculum > Sport

MLC has a proud tradition of participation and success in sport, dating back to the College’s very first sporting fixture, tennis, in 1885.

From house competitions and before-school training, to state and international-level competitions, MLC’s sports program offers something for every student. Regardless of experience or skill, students have the opportunity to participate, challenge themselves and excel. In support of a balanced, holistic education, MLC provides opportunities across a broad range of sports so that all students can engage in physical activity that appeals to them and suits their individual attributes.
