Welcome to Tennis Team

The AHSTC tennis team is for kids of all ability levels. The team holds afternoon practices on Tuesdays and Wednesday from late-May to late-June, and morning practices, Monday through Friday, from late-June to late-July. Matches are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings and are typically played by team members 10 years or older, unless a younger child is particularly strong and skilled. In order to participate in matches, kids must be able to serve, keep score, and rally a few balls continuously. Before the start of summer matches, we offer an inter-club match to give kids a chance to get comfortable with match play in a relaxed and fun environment. The season ends with a two-day End of Season Tournament.

Kids interested in improving their tennis may also take advantage of our 2-week tennis lesson programs offered in the summer, or hire any of our instructors for private lessons. Both of these opportunities are affordable options to further improving tennis skills, especially when compared to local tennis club rates.

The AHSTC Tennis Team is fun, low-pressure way to learn the sport of tennis, or improve existing tennis skills. It’s also a great way to make new friends at the Arb while enjoying time outdoors!
