The ELCO Tennis Boosters Club is comprised of parents and volunteers joined together to (#1) support the needs of the High School boys and girls tennis teams and (#2) develop and strengthen the tennis community through programs for all ages and abilities. It is our goal to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to learn to play tennis – a life-time sport - and that a pathway exists to experience a successful athletic career through High School and beyond.  We are also dedicated to the whole development of our players including tennis, education, and community service.  The club is also a registered USTA Community Tennis Association (CTA) under the name of ELCO Tennis Partners. Join us!
