Tennis: Varsity Boys

Boys-Tennis-1Deerfield has an excellent boys tennis program. Coached by Deerfield legend Jay Morsman ’55 from 1985 until 2014, the varsity team has captured one national title, two New England Championships, and four Kingswood-Oxford School tournaments.

We start the season with the Kingswood-Oxford Tournament, then play dual matches almost every Wednesday and Saturday. Every year we have a winning season, and we have qualified for the New England tournament ten years in a row (and 15 out of the last 18 years). We work hard, show improvement, and, more importantly, have fun.

We ended the 2015 season with a record of 10-4, losing in the New England tournament to eventual champion Exeter.

Our facility includes 18 medium-speed, all-weather courts. A spectators’ pagoda takes a commanding view of the center courts.

Boys tennis at Deerfield is coached by Will Speer. For more information, contact him at wspeer@deerfield.edu.
