PHS Tennis Weekly Update
12/15/14
Quote of the Week: “If someone tells me no, it doesn’t mean I can’t do it, it simply means I can’t do it with them.”


1. Results from last week: No competitions last week
2. Upcoming matches: No official matches or tournaments until the end of January.
3. Parent volunteers: Our January tournaments are our HUGE fundraisers for the team. This brings in nearly 80% of our budget. I’m starting early with these requests in hopes that we do not have to wait last minute. I will need the following volunteers in January
January 27 9th Grade PHS tournament- Parent(s) to buy 25-30 breakfast tacos for hospitality table
January 27 9th grade PHS tournament - 1 parent to help make lunch runs for our kids at the Hendrickson site and 1 for the Connally site.
January 29 JV PHS tournament- Parent(s) to buy 60 breakfast tacos for hospitality table *** Mr. Higgins volunteered for this***
January 29 JV PHS tournament - 1 parent to help make lunch runs for our kids at the Hendrickson site, 1 for the Cedar Ridge site and 1 for the Connally site.
January 30 Varsity PHS tournament- Parent(s) to buy 50 breakfast tacos for hospitality table
January 30 Varsity PHS tournament - 1 parent to help make lunch runs for our kids at the Hendrickson site, 1 for the Cedar Ridge site and 1 for the Connally site.
4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Sam Higgins 12/16!!!
5. Motivational video of the week: No video this week. Instead a movie recommendation to help you get motivated. It is called “The Peaceful Warrior”. Check it out ?
6. New rankings and challenge ladder are up. A reminder…. All results are to be emailed to me by 10:00 each Sunday night. REMINDER….ALL players… not some….ALL… must email me. If right now you are thinking “But what if”…. ALL PLAYERS. “But coach, what if I don’t have a match”, you are not listening….. ALL PLAYERS. I also want the specifics, where you played, what court and what time ect.
7. There will NOT be challenge matches over the winter break, however, all challenge matches this week will be best 3 out of 5 sets.
8. Congrats to Alex and Erin for a very nice performance at the Choir concert last week. Also to Michael, Sam and Hesler for a great 3rd place finish in the school talent show.
9. Outside tennis opportunities: Lots of tennis tournaments in January. I HIGHLY recommend players looking to progress join USTA and participate in outside tennis opportunities such as this one. Many varsity and JV players from the schools we compete against do the same.
a. Here is the link to join USTA https://tennislink.usta.com/Dashboard/Main/Login.aspx?intloc=homepage&intcmp=tlink
b. Berry Creek Winter Junior Open January 9-11 http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx?T=157119
c. Subway BBI Central Texas ZAT 1/10-11
http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx?T=157025
D. GTC Junior Freeze 1/16-18 http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx?T=156619
E. ATA Winter Open 1/23-25 http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx?T=156969

10. The spring schedule is now up on the calendar including tournament dates and practices. A few minor changes might be made in the next few weeks but for the most part, this is it.
11. Some very good deals on rackets for those looking or for parents looking to get their kids a nice Christmas present.
Kevin on varsity is selling his 2 used 2013 Babolat Aero pro Drive GT rackets $100 each
