About Us

The Junior’s Tennis Team will again be participating in the coed Mount Vernon Community Tennis League (MVCT) with a total of seven local teams participating. League matches will take place on Wednesday mornings and Sunday evenings in June and July. We will also have training matches at each age group. A tennis ladder is used to determine who will participate in the league matches. The first, second, and third ranked players (with regard to gender) in each age group will play singles and the fourth and fifth ranked players will play doubles together in the league match. The Junior tennis team is open to members between the ages of 8 and 18.

NOTE: Participating in league matches is not required of players who join the team. Those players who wish to develop skills and friendships in a fun and active environment, but not play competitively can attend the practice sessions without ever playing in a match.
