I'm fired up to get the upcoming tennis season started! 8/21 is the first day of Fall tennis practice. If you haven't registered, please see the attached info from the JHS athletic office so you can get registered and cleared for tennis practice. You must be fully cleared through the athletic office before you are allowed to practice. Also, the athletic office will be open this week, starting tomorrow, 8/14, to help answer any registering questions.

As you probably know, we can't use the JHS courts this year because of construction and portables. So, we will have practice at Finn Hill Middle School for the entire first week of practice, and probably during the second week. Then we will transition to Lake Washington HS for practice and matches once school starts, after Labor Day.
For practice: Wear tennis shoes & athletic clothes. Use sunscreen, wear hats/visors, and bring YOUR OWN LARGE WATER BOTTLE with lots of water. Also bring Gatorade and snacks! Players should bring a tennis racquet. If you don't have one, we can provide one. During the first two weeks of practice, If it's raining/wet, practice will be significantly shortened. The First 5 to 7 days are practice & tryouts to determine Varsity and JV placement.
Also, our Varsity Match Schedule can be found at KingcoAthletics.com:
*All HOME matches will take place at Lake Washington High School.
Let me know if you have any questions, and see you on the court!
