People in this position would be responsible for helping send out reminders and getting things set up on match days.

The Boosters bought pickle juice for the players to use when the weather is extreme. Please make sure your player knows to ask for it if they need it.

Court Report


The Varsity Team is making history!!


Plano West?Highland Park Tournament

Well, it has been a LONG time since we could say this:


The Coppell Cowboys took down the Southlake Carroll Dragons by a score of 10-7 this weekend. It was a hard-fought match with 10 third-set tiebreakers. Hats off to both teams just for surviving the heat! COWBOY FIGHT NEVER DIES!!!


This tennis team is making some history! This weekend we became the first Coppell team to EVER beat Plano West, the first Coppell team to play in the semis of the Plano West/Highland Park tournament, and after a 10-8 defeat of Plano West, we became the first to play in the finals.


It was an outstanding weekend! We came up short against the Scots, but most teams who play them come up short. It has been years since ANYONE beat them. They have been State Champions almost EVERY year since 2001. We're very proud of our team. Our Cowboy fight never died! We are now ready for district play!
