What equipment do you need in order to play tennis?

  • You don’t need much equipment for tennis, you only need 2 things, which are a tennis ball and a tennis racket. They can be found in your local Walmart or Target. 

Is Tennis an expensive sport to play in high school?

  • Tennis is not a very expensive sport to start out, but it can get expensive as you go deeper into tennis. You can find a tennis racket for $20-$50 at target or Walmart, but some specialty rackets can cost $250. A tennis ball is relatively cheap as well, usually being $3 for 3 balls. 

How do I join the Edison tennis team?

  • You can join the Edison tennis team by contacting the athletic director (Verduzco) @Hector.Verduzco@fresnounified.org. During Covid tennis might not be available to new players, but it will be available when everything is safer. 

How do you play Tennis?

  • The basic goal of tennis is to score a point on your opponent and hit the ball over the net. You can gain a point if you make the ball bounce 2 times on your opponent’s court or if your opponent hits the ball at the net or out. 

How do you win a tennis match?

  • A tennis match is divided into 2 sets minimum with 6 games minimum in each set. A player can win a set if they win 6 games before the other player wins 6 games. In order to win the match, you must win 2 sets, so there would be a maximum of 3 sets in a tennis match. 

Is tennis a team sport, if not how is it played?

  • Tennis is not a team sport, there are doubles and singles matches included, a single match is just played with one player on each court and a double match is a match with a partner. For a team to win, most of the players must beat the other teams’ players, so if there are 9 matches one school must win 5 matches. So, one person cannot carry the team. 

When is the Edison Boys Tennis season?

  • The Edison Boys Tennis season is a spring sport, so it goes on from March to May. 

How many teams are there on the Edison Tennis team?

  • There is a Varsity team that can only have 9 players max and a JV team that can hold more than 9 players. 

How does a Tennis Tournament work?
