Junior Team

CST has a junior tennis team organized under the Northern Westchester Junior Tennis League. Team members participate in matches against teams throughout Northern Westchester. The Junior Team is designed for children aged 9–18 years who are “match ready” and can legally serve, volley, know the rules and etiquette of the game, and can properly announce the score during matches. The team is open to any junior player who participates in the lesson program at CST. CST has both a “B” Team and “C” Team. B Team matches take place on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. C Team matches are Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. Team Practices for both Teams are Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 1:00-2:30 p.m. A tryout is required for junior tennis players who do not participate in CST’s lesson program and have not been on the tennis team in previous years. Please contact Lukas Beman, Director of Tennis, at bemantennis@gmail.com if you would like to participate on the team.

Platform Tennis

CST has three state-of-the-art platform tennis courts, with aluminum textured floor boards and hinged snowboards, heated for winter play and lights for evening play. Platform tennis is best played in colder weather and the season usually starts in October and ends in April. The courts are available 7 days a week and may be reserved in advance. Platform tennis is easy to learn and easy to play. The game is played with paddles and special balls. It is an ideal fall and winter sport, as the court is designed to be skid-resistant, with heating systems to melt ice and snow. Scoring is the same as in tennis. In fact, all tennis rules apply, except: only one serve is allowed in doubles play and the ball may be played off the twelve-foot high taut-wire screens that enclose the court.
