About the Sport

How Tennis is Played

At John Jay High School and state-wide, tennis is divided into two seasons within the school year.

In the Fall, players compete in TEAM Tennis. In order to achieve victory, two schools compete to be the first to achieve ten "match-wins" by competing in singles, doubles, and mixed-doubles matches.

In the Spring, players compete in INDIVIDUAL Tennis. Players compete in various tournaments in a "winner takes all" concept by competing in singles, doubles, and mixed-doubles matches.
