Tennis practices are usually held two to three times a week from the beginning of September until the season concludes. Beginners and advanced players receive instruction to improve their strokes and strategy. The athletes compete at the Zone competition in mid-September for the Seniors and late September for the Juniors. Individual winners them move on to play at the SOSSA tournament which is held in late September for the Seniors and early October for the Juniors.
