Overview

Tennis - Boys 2nd Team

Brooks' fine tradition of tennis dates back to the 1930s. The boys program attempts to instill and perpetuate a passion for the game of tennis while developing the tactics and skills necessary to compete successfully. There is significant importance placed on being a team player, competing hard and representing oneself and the school at the highest level.

The program consists of approximately 24 boys on two teams, which practice for 90 minutes each day. The Brooks facility consists of eight outdoor hard surfaced courts, located behind the Danforth Squash and Rowing Center. Matches, six singles and three doubles, are played every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon during the spring. Brooks is one of 16 teams in the Independent School League.

The 2nd tennis team competes quite well in arguably the best private school tennis league in New England.

In addition, student athletes are fortunate to have access to the exceptional on-campus athletic facilities at Brooks. Athletes at all levels have the opportunity to use the fully equipped weight room to improve strength and conditioning, and a fully-staffed training room is available to treat injuries big and small.
