Pupils and staff at Wymondham College are celebrating a refurbishment of the school's tennis and netball courts, which followed a £6,000 fundraising effort.
The Norwich Organ Donation Committee and the school's alumni association, the Old Wymondhamians, both made generous donations to the project, and the refurbished courts were opened at a ceremony last week.
Dr Tim Leary, lead clinician for Organ Donation East Anglia, was among the guests at the opening.
He said: 'We acknowledge and support the fantastic health benefits that regular exercise offers and are delighted to support this wonderful initiative.'
John Mewse, chairman of the alumni group, said: 'The Old Wymonhamians were delighted to support the refurbishment of the Tennis courts and help provide the pupils with updated facilities worthy of all the effort from staff and pupils alike.'

'The financial support from Norwich Organ Donation and the Old Wymondhamians has made this possible, without their help delivering this initiative would have been a considerable challenge.
