As of today, we are exactly 18 days away from Try-outs which is set for Monday, March 8, weather permitting. it is important that you all work on your conditioning as we gear up for our Season. On this note, you will have a timed mile (4 laps around the track) to set the stage in the first week of try-outs. But remember, the best way to improve your tennis conditioning is actually to play tennis.
Regarding the Try-out format, each match will be a 5 games only with Add Scoring. However, if the game score stands at 2-2, a 7 point tie-breaker will be played. Expect to play 4-5 mini-matches per day. All games counts into the final tally.
The most important point and in order to participate on the Boys Tennis Try-outs, you will need to bring in your updated physicals to Ms. Joyce Cardinale at the Athletic Office before March 8. Basically, all tennis participants must appear ALL IN GREEN onto Final Forms. Please make sure to sign-up for “Boys Tennis” into FF, as well.
