The Sudbury valley Junior Tennis league is a competitive Junior
League for boys and girl that compete against various summer clubs in
the area. The league is meant as a fun way to play and compete against
players of equal skill. Below are some of the rules to better illustrate
the league goals and regulations. ( We do not want to discourage
players, however this is a competitive team. Players need to have the
ability to Serve and Play from intermediate to Advance intermediate)
However, this program also doubles as a clinic for advanced beginners to advanced intermediates. Students that are not playing matches will have a chance to play while working on their game in a clinic setting.

Participation in the Sudbury valley tennis team will consist of : practice on Monday and Matches on Tuesday, Practice on Wednesday, and Matches on Thursday. Additional practice on Friday, and the players that are not playing will compete with each other, and other players from the other team that are also not playing. (as I will ask the other clubs to provide extra players if they have them)
Practices run as both a clinic and a team practice, with instructional stroke development drills. Fallowed by live coordinated directional hitting and ending with match play and fun competitive games, such as "Ruler of the court", "touch the fence", "the college drill" and "knock out". Practice will focus on double and single strategy. All the drill and games will have a tactical component to teach them how to play the game and compete.
I hope to see you all on court.
In case of rain, a refund or a credit will be issued.
