The HEBT Junior Tennis Team is a great way for young players to
participate in competitive tennis in a fun, team atmosphere while continuing to
develop both their singles and doubles games. The Junior Teams are open
to HEBT members entering grades 5-12 who play at an intermediate level or
above. Players are expected to serve and rally with consistency and know
the fundamentals of match/play scoring.
The Season will begin on Monday, June 10th and end with the NSJTL Team
Cup (tentatively scheduled) for Friday, August 2nd. At weekly drills, players
learn winning strategies and how to construct singles and doubles points. Fun
individual and team competitions will be organized to help players learn to
compete on their own and as part of a team.
