USTA Team Tennis Challenge weekend October 30th

Saint Johns Tennis Academy entered 8 teams into this weekends USTA Team Tennis Challenge weekend located at Boone Park.  We had 4 teams entered in the U14 intermediate and 4 teams entered into the U18 intermediate.  I am so very proud of each and every team with high efforts to play their very best tennis and displayed great sportsmanship in every match!  I received several compliments from various parents and teams and pros from our local communities.

We had 2 teams come in 1st and 2nd place in our U18 intermediate flight - Team 904 won first place with players Landon Williams, Molly Wannamaker & Lily Thompson.  We had 2 teams of ours in the playoffs of U14 intermediate "Team Highlighters" and "Team Uno".  Team Uno won 1st place with players Allie Bielski, Carys Cook & Lily Davis.

Halloween Tennis Social 2016

We had a blast last night with all our students to celebrate Halloween tennis style. We had three contest winners for ; "Wackiest tennis shot"- Sam W.,  "Best Tweener shot"- Gabe S. , and "Best target serve"- Lily D..  We also had a dog fight in which our winner was Grace W.   Pizza, drinks, awards and candy was enjoyed by all. Coaches Patrick Diegan and Heather Lester thank you for coming out to play in our 4th annual Halloween celebration!


Now forming Junior Team Tennis Teams

We want to announce an excellent opportunity for all our students to form their own team for a local USTA Junior Team Tennis event late October.  We want as many teams as possible to go and compete then have the opportunity to travel with their team to Orlando to compete regionally.  

I specifically want one or two high school teams made. This will be great practice before January tryouts. 

See flyer attached and if you need help being placed on a team come see either Coaches Cheryl, Patrick or Heather to be matched accordingly.
