Millbrook has had a long history of competitive interscholastic tennis. Recently, we have been invited to four of the first six Class C New England tournaments, missing the other two by one match, and have become a fixture at the top of our class. Through competition, we believe that we can aid the progress and future development of each student-athlete on the varsity and junior varsity teams, as tennis players and as people. Most importantly, our program believes that creating a supportive team chemistry is the basis for any successful high school athletic team.
Millbrook benefits from having four newly resurfaced indoor courts and four outdoor hard courts, giving our teams the advantage of getting court time early in the season, and having few, if any, home matches canceled. Tryouts begin at the end of spring break followed by a rigorous four-day practice schedule. The typical training session includes dynamic stretching exercises, agility work, technique and strategy discussions and drills, and ladder challenge matches. Practices usually conclude with a strength and conditioning segment, a cool down, and always some fun and games. A Millbrook tennis player is well prepared for the tough team matches ahead, which are held every Wednesday and Saturday. Our schedule features tough Class C teams like three-time Class C champion St. Luke’s and perennial power Greens Farms Academy. Additionally, we play larger rival schools Kent and Berkshire. Our players have gone on to play at St. Lawrence, Lafayette, and Hamilton college in recent years.
Coaches strive to enable each student-athlete to be the best they can be on and off the court. Having respect for your opponent, displaying good sportswomanship at all times, and dedicating yourself to working hard for the best results is always foremost in the minds of our athletes.
