Girls Tennis Home
Mariners Girls Tennis is a year round program that competes in the spring. Girls in our program not only get to practice during the fall season but can also opt to participate in on court drill sessions during the boys season in the spring and are also encouraged to participate in our winter off-season workout plan.
Our program develops young ladies to be dynamic and creative leaders as well as competitive players. Girls tennis typically carries between 18-21 players on the team with the top 12 getting to compete in non-league as well as league matches while all players get to work on their game through match and drill practice sessions. Mariners girls tennis offers opportunities for competitive and developmental players alike. Our beginner and novice players spend most of their practice time on basic drills while our veteran players work on strategy and match play situations.
Tennis provides our players the opportunity to be a part of a team that works hard together, plays hard together and has fun together. Mariners Girls Tennis is a great community to be a part of. Come and join us!
