Varsity Tennis

Our tennis program is focused on individual growth and resilience. We aim to instill in our players a willingness to learn from mistakes and to accept challenges. We see tennis as a way to learn the dedication, mental strength, focus, and confidence that are essential for success both on and off the court.

Our League Affiliations:

Walker’s tennis program competes in Division 3 of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). Walker’s is also a member school in the prestigious Founders League. League competitors include Choate, Taft, Hotchkiss, Loomis, Westminster, Kent, Kingswood Oxford, and Miss Porter’s.


Due to the cancellation of the spring 2020 season, both the JV and Varsity team members are listed as one group below. Please visit the 2019 Varsity Tennis team page to view their season’s records and results.
