Tompkins High School Tennis Program 2017-2018
“And Then Some” This is a phrase that the Tompkins Tennis Program will use to describe the type of character and effort that it takes to be a champion. We expect the player to not just meet all expectations, but to do 100% of what is asked, AND THEN SOME.
The objective for the Tompkins HS Tennis Team is to influence young men and women to make goals for their life and to have determination to achieve them. The Team will have high moral character and appreciate the value of hard work
Team (Fall) Tennis
Team tennis is when the best players on our team compete against the best players of another team in singles and doubles. There are 6 boys singles matches, 6 girls singles matches, 3 boys doubles matches, 3 girls doubles matches, and 1 mixed doubles match, for a total of 19 possible wins. The first to reach 10 wins will win the team match.
Individual (Spring) Tennis
Individual tennis is when we travel around in the Houston area to compete in tournaments. Each player plays either singles, doubles, or mixed doubles in a draw with at least 16 other schools’ players. This is just like a USTA sanctioned tournament with a 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and consolation winner.
Varsity tryouts will be July 31st and August 1st 2017 – This is open to anyone who believes they have what it takes to play Varsity level tennis. (Top 12 boy and top 12 girls will compose the Varsity team.)
JV tryouts will be August 2nd and August 3rd 2017 – This is open to 10th and 11th graders who do not want to try out for varsity. (Team will be 12 boys and 12 girls.)
Freshmen tryouts will be August 4th 2017 – This is open to any incoming 9th grader who does not want to try out for varsity or did not make the varsity team. (Team will be limited to 15 boys and 15 girls.)
Girls will tryout from 8AM-10AM and boys from 10AM-12PM.
In order to tryout each athlete needs to have a physical completed after May 1st, 2017. Both the school district and some area HEB’s will provide physicals for a small price (and you do not need insurance).
