Captain Duties & Creating a Team


Being the Captain


The Captain of the Team is one of the most valued players in the league, as it is through them, that our players continue to play and enjoy tennis. Captains who exhibit enthusiasm and sportsmanship, and are fair and encouraging to all of their teammates are the key to their team’s continued success. Many people are under the impression that being the captain is a time-consuming, complicated job. No statement could be further from the truth. It is knowing HOW to keep it simple that makes a great Captain and makes playing tennis fun and enjoyable.

  • Make sure your team supplies balls for the match if you’re the Home Team
