Boys' Tennis

Boys' Tennis

Tennis at The Hill School has a long tradition of excellence and achievement.

The School fields a large number of players from beginner to tournament-level on its varsity, junior varsity, and thirds teams. The varsity schedule consists of up to 20 matches against a variety of top prep schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including local high schools. The boys compete in two major tournaments throughout the season: the New England/Mid Atlantic, “NEMA,” tournament against the top prep schools from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania and the culminating MAPL championship against its division rivals. The match format within the MAPL league is the typical six singles, three doubles college format. Non-league matches often call for five singles players and two doubles teams, but can vary based on the competition. Hill’s outstanding tennis facilities include 11 outdoor courts, three indoor practice courts, and two stringing machines.

Head coach Avi Vemuri was a nationally ranked junior player and played collegiate tennis for Division III power Claremont-McKenna.  In his junior season, Coach Vemuri finished the year with a 22-3 record in singles play, which ranks ninth all-time in program history for single-season wins. 

Local tennis pro Ira Watts, who has coached in the program since 2011, is the team's assistant coach.  Coach Watts brings his tennis backgrounds and teaching acumen to the courts on a daily basis and strives to build as competitive a ladder as possible.
