    TIPPIT MIDDLE SCHOOL TENNIS CLASS 2020-2021 

    Welcome to 2020 - 21 Tippit Tennis Class!  We are looking forward to a great year of Tennis under the direction of Coach Angela Harris.  There has always been a high demand for Tennis at Tippit Middle School and I am excited to continue the tradition.  The class is open to 7- 8th grade athletes from beginner to advanced who have an interest in the sport and a desire to improve!  Athletes will have a daily athletic workout with tennis as the central focus of the class period.

    All participants must have a current physical exam.  Returning 8th grade students can use the physical from the prior year.  If you are new to GISD, you must have a current physical exam.  Paperwork can be completed on the Tippit Middle School website under Athletic Physicals.
