Competitive tennis provides an opportunity for those with more experience to develop their games through challenging practices and matches. Our practices take place at the outdoor courts at Deerfield Academy. As a co-ed team, we strive to foster a strong sense of camaraderie, and we emphasize the importance of supporting the growth of our teammates. We play matches with Deerfield Academy, Northfield Mount Hermon, MacDuffie, and Eaglebrook.
