St. Rudolph Academy Middle School ((せい)ルドルフ学院中学校(がくいんちゅうがっこう), Sei Fudorufu Gakuin Chuugakkou), is in Tokyo. Despite being new, it has quickly risen to being one of the top 8 strongest schools in Tokyo Prefecture. [3]


St. Rudolph is a new school founded only five years prior to the start of the series. Two years ago, they decided to focus on strengthening it's sport department, utilizing a combination of new equipment, modern theories, and recruiting talented players from other schools. Teammates work well together without divisions in the ranks, despite being a mix of original students and recruited students.[3]

From left to right, boys' winter and summer uniforms, and girls' winter and summer uniforms.



The winter uniform is a brown blazer with the school crest on the chest, brown pants, a white long-sleeved dress shirt and a red and white striped tie. The summer uniform switches out the blazer and long-sleeved shirt for a short sleeved shirt with the school crest on the chest. Ties must be worn with the uniform at all times, and boys are required to iron their pants.[4]


The winter uniform for girls is a brown blazer with the school crest on the chest, a white dress shirt, a red and white striped tie, and a knee-length brown skirt without pleats. Like the boys' uniform, the girls' summer uniform switches out the blazer and long sleeved shirt for a short-sleeved white dress shirt with the school emblem on the chest. It is a point that the hem of girls' skirts must end 3cm above the knee.[4]

Tennis Club


The boys' tennis uniform consists of a jersey, a polo, warm-up pants and shorts. The jersey is a white half-zip sweater, with a thick brown stripe around the chest and arms at armpit level. On the stripe, the sleeve reads 'St. Rudolph'. The zipper has a circular pull. The polo is designed similarly to the jersey, but with short sleeves. A notable feature of the polo is it also zips at the collar. The warm-up pants and shorts are both plain brown. In the anime, the 'St. Rudolph' on the sleeves was omitted for ease of animation.
