Tennis - Boys

  • The courts are open - feel free to use them - I would highly suggest you talk with your parents first and stick to singles every other court to maintain social distancing.

    The 2020 Amherst Boys Tennis Team will be returning with a very different starting line-up. This is due to the tremendous seniors who graduated. We are lucky to have a terrific JV program that keeps us competitive even when we lose some talented players. This year's team informational meeting will be on Thursday March 3 in the MS Band Room at 4PM. If you cannot make this meeting then you need to email Mr. Biddle or text him. There will be a Mandatory parents meeting at 5PM in the Band Room after the student meeting. Please make every effort to attend.
     
    Practices will start on Monday March 9 alternating between the Miller Tennis Center and the HS Courts (weather depending). This year we will be playing in Division 2 against divisional opponents invcluding Will South, Will East, Hamburg, Sweet Home and Starpoint. We will also be playing several non-dividsion opponents including East Aurora, Will North, Clarence and Lancaster. 
     
    Players should get their racquets gripped and restrung prior to the first practice on March 9. Communication will be key for our success this year and I expect everyone to be on the same page. Please refer to the website for schedule updates. I will make decisions for practices depending on the weather by 2PM on a daily basis. Be ready to play in some colder weather.
