2020 Captains: Matt Kandel '20 and Powers Trigg '20
Groton has a long tradition of extremely strong boys tennis and competes in the Independent School League, arguably the strongest league in New England. Since the early sixties, Groton has had only three head coaches: Richard “Doc” Irons, who coached tennis in the sixties and seventies and for whom the ISL championship trophy is named; David Bannard, who was head coach in the seventies and early eighties; and now John Conner, who was been head coach since 1981.
The squad is often in the hunt for honors in the league. Blessed with ten outdoor courts and eight indoor courts, Groton's facilities are among the best around. Working hard, setting high goals, and exhibiting the finest sportsmanship are trademarks of the Groton School tennis experience.
