BHSAT Youth Tennis Teams
Team Placement

The BHSAT tennis team uses a ladder system to determine team placements and line-ups as in years past. The players we select for the competitive team is based on both past and present levels of play.   Players must be able to rally and get their serve in at least 50 percent of the time. There is a “Ladder Day” each year on the second Saturday in June (this year’s date is Saturday June 8th beginning at 12pm). The ladder process will be set up by the coaching staff, but players can arrange challenge matches during the season to move up in rankings accordingly.

 

The BHSAT Team Ladder Day, Practice, and Championship Schedule is as follows beginning June 17th:

New Player Try-Out, Tuesday, June 4th, at 7pm
