In 2019, the Sabers tennis team will play its first fall season, after decades as a spring sport offering. In 2019, a gritty Spence team clawed their way to a 3rd place regular season finish and advanced to the AAIS semifinal. 2018, the Sabers took the AAIS Tennis tournament by storm, entering as the No. 6 seed and upsetting the No. 3 and No. 2 seeds on their way to finishing as tournament runner-up. In 2018, Spence was undefeated at the No. 1 singles position for the first time in more than five years. As 2013 AAIS Regular Season Co-Champion and 2011 AAIS Tournament Champion, Varsity Tennis has an established history of success. Student-athletes are challenged to build advanced individual skills and employ them in a competitive AAIS regular season schedule and a postseason team tournament. Regular season matches include singles and doubles play, and athletes will learn to employ competitive strategies in all forms of match play.
The team practices and competes at various venues throughout NYC. As is the case with all of our varsity teams, tennis is a Monday-through-Friday commitment. Athletes are required to supply their own racquets and to wear tennis court shoes.
