Tennis Registration now open!

Hello KSTC Families,

We are excited to start the 2024 Tennis season. Below you will find all the information about our upcoming season.  We are excited to introduce our two coaches and will be having a tennis meet and greet on Sunday, June 2nd at 1pm at the club.  Feel free to drop by to say hi.

Tennis Coaches:
Nathan Greutman,
Hello! I am super excited to be coaching at KSTC this summer. I have played on the KSTC tennis team for many years and have been super grateful to have a lot of fun and make new friends! I graduated from Kentwood High School where I played on the Varsity tennis team and I am currently on the Western Washington University club tennis team where I just finished my sophomore year of my undergrad. This year my main goal is to make tennis really fun! Games will be engaging and we will have a good time growing together as a team. I also plan on working on skills and helping players grow throughout the summer. I can’t wait to meet you all and start playing. Go KENT!

Nick Greutman,
I am thrilled to be returning as the assistant coach for this season to share my experience and love for the sport of tennis. KSTC tennis is all about having fun while learning skills to improve your game. Looking forward to seeing you on the courts!

Tennis Team:
Registration is now open!
We will be playing matches against Arbor Heights, Gregory Seahurst, and Olympic View. In order for your child to participate in matches, there will be an assessment by the coaches to determine if they meet the requirements e.g. able to serve on their own. However, do not let this deter your child from joining the team as we will also be having inter-squad matches. Our goal is to continue building foundational skills early and the positive experiences of being cheered on by teammates as they improve their backhand or master their volley will continue to build their self-confidence in the sport.
The cost for tennis team will be $130 per player plus a ball fee of $10 per family and this fee includes a team shirt. Once registered I will be reaching out to obtain the shirt size needed for your player or players. If you have 3 or more players in your family, you will see a discount for each additional player after the first 2.
