Tennis - Boys' Varsity

Record: 13-5

Overview

Overview

Taft’s tennis program consistently fields highly competitive and successful teams. For more than three decades the boys’ varsity team has been coached by Peter Frew ’75, widely regarded as one of the finest secondary school racquet coaches in New England.

The boys’ varsity tennis team earned Founders League titles in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2014, and tied for the league championship in 2015. Over the years, the team often earned berths in the prestigious New England Tournament, including (and most recently) every season from 2004-2011, and 2013-2015. They were New England semifinalists in 2006, finalists in 2007, 2011, and 2016, and have won numerous Southern New England Tennis League tournaments, including those in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Many Taft players tennis have gone on to successful DI and DIII college careers, and more importantly, have embraced Frew’s team philosophy: enjoy the game, compete with class, and carry ourselves with dignity.
