Hello Mayo Tennis Family,
Wow, it's almost that time again. We are currently having REGISTRATION until Aug 2nd on the Mayo Website. Please register at this time so we can get a count of how many players will be on the team this year. We also want to order uniforms by Aug 4th.
Our Captains this year are the following players who have played for the Mayo Team for many years and are leaders who are committed to the tennis program. They will carry on the classy Spartan tradition!
The three captains are:
*We will be having the PAC(Parents, Athletes, Coaches)Meeting the first week of the season which will be the week of Aug 14th. We will need to do a fundraiser this year or collect donations. The team will decide the first week what we should do.
We have a new Assistant Coach at Mayo. Her name is Tristen Bryant-Otake. She is also the Head Coach of the Mankato State Womans Tennis Program and worked at Gustavus this past summer at the TLC Tennis Camps. We are happy to have her on board.
**The season starts on Aug 14th and the expectation is that all the players that have played or are vying for a varsity spot need to be there. We only have one week of practice before our match play starts(Aug 21). If you choose to go on vacation, this could jeopardize where you play on the team. You will miss match(es) depending on how many days you miss. The first 3-4 days will be challenge matches.
The practice schedule for the first week will be as follows:
3:45-5:45pm-Players that were part of the 2022 State Team
5:30-7:00pm-All other players including new players
**We WILL be bringing up the top players from Group 2 to Group 1 after the first practice and throughout the week.
Please bring plenty of water and a towel.
The Game Schedule is not up to date but can be found at Big9.org. Here are the changes that will be added:
Aug 22-Home-2:00pm and 6:00pm(not 9:00am)
Aug 23-Away at Minnetonka-1:00pm
Aug 24-Away 4:00pm and 6:00pm(not 9:00am)
Sept 9-Away 9:00AM-Edina Invite(Varsity only)
Hope everyone has a great rest of the summer and see you in TWO WEEKS. We should have tons of fun, Coach Demaray
Hello Mayo Tennis Family,
We just concluded six weeks of the Mayo Doubles Camps, and I want to say thank you to all who participated. We had a record 48 players from the Mayo Boys(26) and Girls(22) that came out and improved their doubles game. We had a great time and the players worked very hard throughout all six weeks. A special thanks to the new boys captains(Daniel Meunier, Noah Wisniewski, and David Teng) who came out and participated.
I encourage all of our players to continue to take lessons at one of the clubs, keep playing tournaments, and have fun!! To the all of the boys, we'll see you next spring and come out and cheer on our girls team this fall.
To all the girls, REGISTRATION for this girls season is going on NOW. Please get signed up, so we can order uniforms by Aug 4th. The girls season starts Aug 14th.
Thanks again to everyone and have a great rest of the summer, Coach Demaray
Camp Information: The camp will touch on all phases of the game of tennis, but a special emphasis will be given to the development of Doubles strategy and positioning.

This is not open to beginners or advanced beginners due to the fact that rallies need to take place in order to focus on doubles positioning.
