Tennis Tryouts Begin February 24th

The upcoming tennis season starts on February 24th and the boy’s varsity team has a reason to be optimistic. Number one seed Richard T. ‘14 thinks that, “this year is the best year; we’ve had a chance to make regionals.” In these past couple of seasons, the boys’ Wakefield tennis team hasn’t been past the districts with powerhouses Yorktown and Washington – Lee always beating them out.

Times are changing. Richard went on to share, “we are a balanced team and have the same top four seeds from last year.” Varsity tennis consists of 10 tennis players (boys and girls teams practice together and play separately). Each match consists of six singles matches and three doubles matches. Usually everybody on the team gets to play, even if it’s just an exhibition match that doesn’t count. You should try out! Even if you’ve never held a racket in your life, the tennis team will welcome you with open arms.
