About LA Tennis - Boys

LIPSCOMB ACADEMY TENNIS - BOYS

The Lipscomb Academy Tennis program has a rich tradition of athletic success as well as personal development.

Players who participate in our program have access to NCAA Division 1 facilities where they can develop skills that will serve them through the enjoyment of a life-long sport. Our purpose is to mold young men and women to be people who reflect Christ in all that they do, whether on or off the court. In alignment with that purpose, our goals center on development of player skills and technique, fostering a deep sense of community within our team, and creating an environment where players have fun and take great joy in playing the game of tennis.
