Open Court means that the coaches of the WJMS tennis team will be at the tennis courts supervising potential WJMS tennis players and providing tennis balls, and extra racquets.  However, coaches cannot coach the students at this time as this is, “off-season.”  The coaches will be able to coach during the summer. We are looking for students that are eager to learn how to play tennis,  but experience is not required.  Some of our best players did not pick up a tennis racquet until their 6th grade year.  Good attitudes, drive, focus, and coachability are characteristics that are appreciated on our team.  This opportunity gives students interested in tennis the opportunity to get out to the courts, get comfortable with the game, and see if it is something they would like to continue learning.  

 

Please wear outdoor athletic clothing, a hat or visor, tennis shoes/running shoes, sunscreen, and bring a WATER bottle as practices will get hot.  

 

Tennis lessons are offered at Mill Creek (through the Statesboro Recreation Department) and by high school tennis players/other trained individuals. I have also attached two local camp opportunities. Coaches can share that information with anyone looking for tennis lessons in Statesboro.   


If you have any questions, please contact Coach Hall at bghall@bullochschools.org or at 912-690-4004.
