Blackfriars has a reputation for sporting excellence and offers an extensive range of sports.
Blackfriars has a well-equipped, modern gymnasium, which is the focus for many sporting activities. We are fortunate in having the parklands facilities close by, where the school has football, cricket and soccer grounds, along with tennis courts for the school's use.
In the centre of the parkland playing fields stands the Adelaide Aquatic Centre, which is used by the school for competition and leisure activities.
The school is a member of the Sports Association for Adelaide Schools (SAAS) and participates against other independent schools in organised competition.
