Tennis

Coach: Chris Klinck
Assistant Coach: Rylee Artman

 

Grenada High School’s robust tennis program has an excellent record competing against the best in the state. The varsity team finished as district champs in 2016, 2017, and 2021.

Coach Klinck has maintained a strong program since he started in 2003. With a roster of 26-32 players, the team hosts or travels to 15-18 matches each spring. The team regularly advances to the state playoffs to compete with the district’s other top schools, and players routinely compete at the state tournament in the individual competition. 

The GSD teams are Grenada’s sole tennis program, so Coach Klinck focuses on developing the youngest players. Seventh and 8th grade members who show promise are often invited to compete on the junior varsity team. As players become more proficient, they fill the starter positions on the varsity team.

Klinck, a USPTA-certified (United State Professional Tennis Association) teaching pro, offers lessons outside of school for young players and organizes a summer program through USTA (United States Tennis Association) with teams for various age levels.

The teams compete within the 6A district as well as other schools with big tennis programs to ensure that as many members get court experience. Players may compete in boys/girls singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.

Tryouts for the team are held each May. Practice is fourth block and after school during the spring season.
