Tennis is a spring sport with practices and matches played at Tower Grove Tennis Facility for the present time. Practices are usually from 3:15 – 4:45 on weekdays. Players can be on either Varsity or Junior Varsity with an affiliation with the USTA as a “no cut” tennis program with an emphasis on the players learning the game and enjoying a sport that is there for them for a lifetime.

The schedule can vary from year to year, but normal opponents are Bishop DuBourg, Kennedy, St. Dominic, Lutheran St. Charles, Vianney, Chaminade, Windsor, Webster Groves, Lutheran South, Oakville and Mehlville.
