TENNIS

Sport Overview

WYSI Tennis is aimed at teaching the fundamentals of tennis in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. There is no experience necessary to play, only a willingness to learn, listen, and have fun! Registration for tennis is open April 1 – May 15 of the current season.

Note: Enrollment numbers are limited. Once the enrollment numbers have been met, enrollment will close and all others will be placed on a wait list. Unfortunately our numbers must be capped due to limited court space. We encourage players to enroll early!

Practices and games will be held at the Westfield High School Tennis Complex.
