Spring Tennis Update

February 2, 2023

Dear Gunston Tennis Families,

The Spring Tennis season is approaching, and we’re looking forward to a great season. Given the spring season’s focus on interscholastic ESIAC competition, it is necessary for the team numbers to align appropriately with our 6-court Gunston Tennis Center capacity.

This year, we have nearly 40 students who have shown interest in participating in tennis! While this is great news overall, the capacity for both boys and girls tennis is approximately 15 students per team, with a typical total of 30 students overall. Therefore, students who wish to participate on the spring varsity interscholastic competitive tennis team will need to “make the team” via a preseason skills assessment program designed by the coaches. 

Students whose skills do not meet the varsity tennis threshold this year will need to transition to a different sport (which might include pickleball) or fitness option but are encouraged to try again next season. For students in this situation, I pledge to work closely and individually with each student and family to find an engaging, healthy, and fun alternative. Please reach out to me if you have any questions.

Thank You,

Josh Breto
Director of Athletics & Transportation
