MSP is excited to announce we have a new tennis coaching team in place for the 2015-2016 school year!
Alyce Reames (USPTA Elite Certified), Claudia Simmons, and Felicity Moore are new to our team and Jim Morgan never left us!
Our entire school website is going to be under construction, so we will be sending out more detailed information about the team and the tennis program via Constant Contact for the time being. Shortly, we will have a fantastic USTA tennis program in full swing and a new website!
We appreciate all the feedback we received this summer and hope you’ll see the changes that have been made were done with your child in mind! One example of this is our new Tiny Tots Tennis class designed for 4-6 year olds. With shorter play times, low ratios and daily offerings, we think this class is going to be an ace! Everyone on the team is anxious to get on the courts and are looking forward to working with all the children.
Tennis starts Tuesday, September 8th. Registration forms and fee structures are located in both offices. Please join us Thursday, September 10 during open house night and meet the entire tennis coaching team in person!

In November of 2013, MSP was awarded USTA grants for special smaller-sized courts for younger children, seniors and those with mobility issues. Click here to read the announcement on the USTA website.
In April 2015, the new smaller sized courts were unveiled. Click here for more information.
