Boys Varsity Tennis
Message from the Coach
I’ve been coaching the Boys Varsity tennis team since 2012, and I’ve been playing tennis since I was eight-years old. As a junior on the New England tennis circuit, I played against two future top-ten professionals, Brad Gilbert and Tim Mayotte, and was ranked as high as 15th in singles and 1st in doubles. Before coming to Kent School ten years ago, I coached varsity tennis teams at other private schools and continued to play competitively in tournaments throughout Connecticut.
As the Boys Varsity tennis coach, my goal is to produce fundamentally sound, strategically smart, mentally tough and superbly conditioned tennis players who conduct themselves with dignity and class on and off the court, and who work hard in the classroom and on the practice court. I would also like to attract more tennis players to Kent School who already possess these attributes. Though Kent School’s tennis facilities are first rate (four indoor courts, four outdoor hard courts, and five outdoor clay courts), to remain competitive in a tough league we need to replenish our stock of talented players lost to graduation.
