Two 11-year old boys from Kingswood House School (KHS) in Epsom are making waves after a string of spectacular sporting achievements. Matthew Muncey, 11, from Ashtead was awarded first place in his first wakeboarding competition of 2011 at Liquid Leisure water-ski and wakeboard centre’s Love Jam tournament, based in Windsor. He will now go on to compete in the UK nationals on July 21 where he will be competing against riders of all ages.

His father, Paul, said: “I know Matthew would like to thank the staff who run the holiday courses at KHS, Kingswood Active, as it was a trip to JB Ski that introduced him to the sport three years ago.

“He has now progressed from kneeboarding with the school to becoming the top rider in the country for his age.”

Fellow classmate Jake Hardman, 11, from Epsom who started dinghy sailing at the age of seven, now regularly races against 14 and 15 year olds.

He has already competed in a number of tournaments and will enter the Royal Yacht Association zone squad qualifying events in September.

His father, Jason, said: “Being in this squad will give access to special coaching that would undoubtedly enhance his sailing skills greatly.

“It is the route that many of our successful Olympians followed in their early years.”

Headmaster of Kingswood House School, Peter Brooks, said: “Matthew and Jake are showing all the children how if you work hard and apply yourself, you can really follow your dreams.

“We are very proud of both of them.”
