Boys Varsity Tennis

team

The Andover Boys Varsity Tennis Team won the Class A New England title for the second year in a row in 2014, while also winning the Stan Smith Award at Nationals in Newport Beach, California in March.

We have a large and popular tennis program at Andover, with a fall co-ed instructional and intramural program run by USPTR-certified professional and English teacher Dr. Greg Wilkin and three boys teams taking part in interscholastic contests in the spring. We play matches against Taft, Exeter, Deerfield, Choate-Rosemary Hall, St. Paul’s School, and many of the strongest Boston-area private and public high schools. Team members play both singles and doubles. We are confident that the training received enhances their candidacy to strong university programs.

We have lots of fun in tennis here at Andover. We look forward to alumni tennis reunions and matches, wherein our players might get the chance to play against former players like All-American Trey Meyer '09; two-time NEPSITT champion Tom Reifenheiser '90; Peter Palandjian '82, Harvard '89, Moustapha '89 and Ousmane '90 Diop, Senegalese Davis Cuppers and champion doubles players at Oberlin; and 1989 NEPSITT champion Chi-Wai Lam of Yale. A look at the record books shows that tennis at Andover is a great, 120-year-old tradition.

As always, Varsity Tennis is a six-day-a-week commitment. Varsity A may practice in the Cage from 8-9:30 p.m. on rainy or inclement days. A player needs to compete in a Varsity A match to be considered for a letter.
