This year the Amherst Varsity tennis team will start practicing on September 21 from 4-6PM. We are currently working on an updated schedule. This schedule will be posted ASAP. Please make sure you have your physical updated with the school nurse by then. We can take care of all the other forms as we get going. If you are in 7th or 8th grade you must have taken the physical fitness test with Mr. Wheaton and passed.
This year's varsity schedule will feature 10 divisional matches against Division 2 schools: Will South, Will East, Hamburg, Sweet Home and Starpoint. All other Non-League and Non-Division matches will be canceled for this upcomming season.
There will be 3 starters in singles and 2 doubles teams for each match. Other players will be competing in exhibition matches. All tennis players will be strengthening their game through fundamentals, ground strokes, serves, volleys and overall match strategy. Everybody on the team is expected to be a team player, and treat opposing players, coaches, teammates and themselves with respect.
Please make sure your physicals are up to date with the school nurse. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at:
Let's have a great season!!
