The official start of the boy's tennis season is Wednesday, August, 13, 2014. We have a No Cut Tennis Policy. We carry 16 players on Varsity, based on experience and match play ability. The rest of the players play on the J.V. team. Everyone plays in every match, as long as they attend practice and training sessions.

In order to prepare the boys for the upcoming season, Pinckney Community Education is running two, three week training camps for J.V.  and Varsity players.

The J.V. camp meets on Tuesday's and Thursday's, from 10:30-12:00, at Pathfinder courts, and is for all retuning J.V. players and incoming freshmen. The Varsity camp also meets on Tuesday's and Thursday's, from 12:30-2:00, and is for all returning Varsity players and higher level J.V. and incoming freshmen.

If you have any questions regarding our programs or which camp to place your child, please don't hesitate to call coach Ben Tasich at 248-238-4474 or you can reach him at, oakleaf8@comcast.net

There is a $200.00 pay to play fee for playing on the Varisty or J.V. teams. Scholarships are available in hardship cases.
