Junior Tennis Teams
SHBR competes in the Northern Virginia Tennis League (nvtl.org) during the summer season of May thru August with a divisional tournament held at the end of the season. The expectation for each player is that they are able to rally with another player, serve reasonably well and are able to keep score in order to compete in matches. Depending on number of players the coach will make recommendations to players who do not meet the requirements. To register your child please go to the SHBR team registration page (https://shbr.org/tennis/tennis-registration/)
Matches are held on Wednesday mornings usually at 9am unless otherwise coordinated with team coaches. The match format for Boys and Girls 11-18 is as follows: 9 courts play, 3 at 12 & Under (2 singles and 1 doubles), 3 at 14 & Under (2 singles and 1 doubles), and 3 at 18 and Under (2 singles and 1 doubles). In general, an 8 game pro set is played on each court, but coaches can always agree to play a 6 game pro set if there are potential weather or time constraints.
For 10 and under players we are currently discussing a developmental team to help bring up match players in the coming years. Please be patient as we discuss how best to staff this program and how best to schedule this program for 2017.
Logan West of Go West Tennis is the junior team head coach and will be relying on parent representatives for both boys and girls teams to assist with match day transportation, end of the season party and other tasks as needed. If you are interested or have any other questions please email either Logan West (email@example.com) or Billy Peterson the current SHBR board representative for tennis (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Adult Tennis Teams
SHBR adult teams also compete in the Northern Virginia Tennis League (nvtl.org) Currently we have a Men’s division 10 team which plays every Saturday morning starting at 9am. The team plays 4 singles and 3 doubles. If you’d like to join the fun or have further questions please email Billy Peterson (email@example.com) or Art Cook (firstname.lastname@example.org)
At the moment there is no Women’s NVTL team. In order to start a team, we need volunteers to organize, recruit and communicate with both NVTL and with the board representative to tennis at SHBR. Please email email@example.com if you have interest.
