Tennis - Girls

Program Overview:

The Greenwich High School Girls Tennis program consists of three teams, one Varsity and two Junior Varsity teams.  Varsity plays a 16 game schedule and competes in a postseason FCIAC and State tournament.  JV A and B usually play around 5-9 games.  Our home courts are at GHS for Varsity and Binney Park for the 2 JV teams.


Time Commitment:

The Varsity team is a 6 day commitment (with either a Saturday or Sunday off).  Practices range from 1.5 to 2 hours in length.  Practices and home matches are at GHS. Practice sessions will start at 3:15pm half the time, and the other half at roughly 4:30, as we alternate with the boys team for early and late practice times (girls will usually be early on odd days, late on even).  Girls have matches every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays are reserved for practices and rain dates.  VARSITY TEAM IS EXPECTED HERE DURING OUR SPRING BREAK.

The 2 JV teams practice Monday-Friday at Binney Park (JVA) and Eastern Middle School (JVB) right after school.  School bus is provided to transport the girls from school to practice.

Spectators are allowed and encouraged at matches.  Please adhere to our school norms while watching the matches and only positive cheering is allowed.
