Fitness and conditioning are stressed, as is good sportsmanship and having fun!

Match Report

On May 3, 2021 The MacDuffie School co-ed tennis team had their first official tennis match against a men’s powerhouse team from the Marianapolis School, CT. This was the team’s first match after many weeks of practice, and so many players stepped up to play great competitive games.  Although we didn’t come up with a team victory, we won on so many levels of applied skills, mental toughness, and team spirit.  As the coach, I couldn’t ask for more!
Honorable mention goes to several players for their performance under pressure, first, Anastasia for her blistering backhand points, Spinghar for his defensive play, frustrating his opponent, and Mert for his mental toughness getting the team high winning points.
Congratulations team!
So practice will intensify and the learning continues as we look forward to our next match at home on May 13, 2021.
