Boys Tennis

Please note that the first day of preseason is a day when school is NOT in session. If you do not drive, please make plans in advance.

Friday, March 3, 2017, is not a school day, yet BHS student-athletes are expected to attend their first tennis practice at BMS (gymnasium to start).

The address for the tennis courts is the same as for Bernardsville Middle School (BMS): 141 Seney Drive, Bernardsville, NJ 07924.

In case of inclement weather, the BMS gym is available from 3-5 P.M. on the following six school days: 3/3, 3/6-3/10. If a student-athlete has been cleared prior to 3/3 and attends the first six practices, he is officially eligible to participate in interscholastic competition.
