Archbishop Rummel offers a tennis program for grades 8 – 12. Students in eighth and ninth grade may join the varsity tennis team regardless of their playing ability. The tennis team practices from September – April and begins match play in February. During the months prior to match play, the team will be taught the mechanics and strategic aspects of the game of tennis. During the competitive tennis season, the team will compete against 16 other schools, and participate in the regional and state tournaments in May.
Parents are notified that free tennis lessons are available for any student who joins the Raider tennis team. Some parents have responded favorably to the offer because they want to expose their son to a life time, aerobic activity at no cost. If a student starts the Rummel tennis program in eighth or ninth grade, he will be at least a 4.0 level player by the time he reaches his senior year. If he is interested in another sport in addition to tennis, there will be no problem with working around that sport, especially since the Rummel team practices almost year round.
For questions about the tennis program, please email Mr. John Schmidt at email@example.com.
