VARSITY GIRLS TENNIS
Welcome to the Carteret Varsity Girls Tennis Team webpage. The Lady Ramblers have been coached by Coach Connolly for the past three years. The team is made up of an energetic group of young ladies of varying levels of tennis ability. Previous tennis training or experience is not a requirement to try out for the team but a desire to learn and work hard are. We compete in the Greater Middlesex Conference in the Gold division. We enjoyed a winning season in 2019!
The girls on the team are taught the game of tennis from the basics of the game, such as ground strokes and score keeping to the complicated strategies used in singles and doubles play. Last August the team fundraised to go to the US Open at the United States Tennis Association’s Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The girls watched top ranked professional tennis players compete against each other.
Tryouts for the team take place in late May or early June. There is a meeting held at CMS for incoming freshmen and at CHS for upperclassmen. Team expectations and commitments are discussed and mandatory paperwork is distributed.
