SPRING COMPETITIVE TENNIS
NOAH’s Spring Tennis Program is our most intense time – playing against local public and private schools. To this end, we use United States Tennis Association (USTA) grading standard, Level 2.5, as our benchmark. Following is the definition from USTA: A 2.5 Player is able to judge where the ball is going. Player can sustain a slow pace rally of several shots with someone of the same ability using both forehand and backhand sides and can volley with moderate success. Player can keep score unassisted, can call own lines, can serve overhand from the baseline and has a basic understanding of the rules.
If your High School student is below this level you are encouraged to participate in Fall Tennis as well as work with your student independently to prepare them Spring Tennis. We have found this approach provides your student with the best opportunity to succeed at tennis. Spring Competitive Tennis includes both Varsity and Junior Varsity events.
Junior High students are encouraged to participate in practices and drills during the spring. Practices are designed to prepare experienced players for duals and tournaments as well as helping younger players continue to improve their fundamentals, skills, and knowledge of the game.
Tennis fees are $125.00 for first individual, $100 for the second, and $75 for each consecutive player from the same family. Uniforms are not part of the fees and are ordered separately.
Tennis Registration is still live for those who did not register during the fall. All players will be required to register in order to be eligible to participate and compete in the spring.
