Gordon's tennis team fielded the winning pair in a statewide doubles tournament in spring 2018. Seventeen teams from nine middle schools competed in the first-ever RIPCOA State Tennis Doubles Tournament.
There is a $240 per season non-refundable fee for fall and winter instructional tennis. Enrollment is limited, and families who are interested should get in touch with the Athletic Director in advance of the season.
Enrollment is also limited in the spring competitive tennis program. To be considered for the spring tennis team, students need to have participated in at least one of the instructional seasons. Even then, no one is guaranteed a place on that team.
Both the fall and winter instructional programs are comprised of eight one-hour sessions. Students are bused to Tennis RI, East Bay in East Providence on pre-determined Friday afternoons and arrive back to Gordon at approximately 3:45.
Fifth graders interested in both instructional basketball and instructional tennis should sign up for the fall tennis session and not the winter session due to potential scheduling conflicts.
Students invited to join the G-Notes a cappella group cannot participate in fall or winter tennis.
Shorts with pockets
Students are also encouraged to bring water bottles.
