The MacArthur tennis program was first started in 1975. Grant Burns qualified that year for the state tournament. The numbers in the program have been swelling the past few years and so has the quality of play. In the past we struggled to field a team and now we are growing to the point where kids are spending more time on the court during the off season. Many are also taking weekly lessons. In the past, the courts were vacant during the off season. Now one can drive by and see people on the courts throughout the year. The tennis ball is definitely bouncing in the direction of Mac High Tennis. To coin the lyrics from a song from the 80s “The future is so bright, we have to wear shades”.
