Just a heads up concerning 2021  Summer schedule / Fall varsity tryouts and matches.

Monday evening workouts for players intending to try out for the varsity team will begin in July from 6-8pm. They will take place July 5, 12, 19 and 26. This way if someone is out of town for a week, we will still be able to keep up with how /what they are doing as tryouts approach. All paperwork is required to be eligible for these Summer dates

Varsity tryouts begin @ CTJ Monday Aug 2 at 8 am. There will be multiple matches each day as we have our first tournament that week. These tryouts end no later than 2 pm. each day.

JV and Freshman tryouts will take place during the first week of school. The main JV/freshman season takes place throughout the Spring semester. There are only a few freshman/JV dates in mid October.

Please email me at kbice@neisd.net or text me at (210) 632-8176 if you need help finding local tennis lessons and camps. Blossom tennis center has half and full day camps all summer. They also offer 30 minute and 1 hour private lessons to get ready for tryouts. Basic strokes with the right grips nd spins are expected to make the JV/freshman team.You can find out more info on blossomtennis.coma

More details to come.

Varsity Pre season matches:

Thurs & Friday Aug 5-6 @ Kerrville Invitational. We will drive up each day to save our out of town tournament date for College Station in March 2022.

Monday August 9th @ Clemens 9 am
Tuesday Aug 10th @ CTJ vs Smithson Valley 9 am
Thursday Aug 12th @ Blossom vs Brennan 9 am

More details to come. We have a quick start this Fall as our district matches begin Thursday Aug 19th vs Mac.
