Hi Everyone and welcome to the Newington High School Boys Tennis website!
My name is Don Lukowski and I am the Boys Tennis Coach here at Newington, entering my 19th year.
The spring 2018 program will consist of 3 levels; Varsity and JV A & JV B. What is unique about our program is that we have a no-cut policy. All student-athletes who try out for the team are kept. In my opinion, this is the best way to build a team for the future. We carry approximately 10 to 12 players on Varsity and the remainder on JV.
The JV players have their own game schedule, however, many of them have the opportunity to play in extra matches during Varsity games.
Our season begins in late March and finishes in early June. We are very fortunate that the Town of Newington completely re-did our tennis facility, located directly behind the school. It's a beautiful venue, with 9 courts!
My philosphy is that I want my players to develop both academically, as well as athletically. We stress the importance of grades in the overall development of the player. The academic side is a high priority with me.
Also, I want my players to enjoy the sport and have fun in the process. Winning is important..... but it's not everything. I want my players to strive to be their best and to enjoy their time on the court with their teammates.
For all new incoming freshmen - We accept players of all ability levels. Also, please click on " News " and then click on " Boys Tennis News" on left bar and then click on " 2018 important player information" to see what you must take care of before season starts. If you have an interest in tennis - I would hope that you would consider joining our team!
Thank you for visiting our website - if you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me at DonL7533@aol.com
thanks again, Coach Don Lukowski
