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.
 
Local tennis pro Ira Watts, who has coached in the program since 2011, is the interim coach for the spring 2018 season. 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.
