The after-school tennis program is sponsored by the Hillview PTO, and is open to all Hillview students. Less experienced players will get as much practice time as all players, but should not expect as many matches vs other schools. The Hillview PTO hires well qualified coaches to conduct practices and matches. Parent coordinators administer the program and find parent volunteers to help coaches during practice, suggest how parents can arrange carpools and snacks. We will need more. Our returning head coach will be USPTA tennis pro and high school coach Yasuo Fukui We currently need an assistant coach. If any parent is willing to help please let us know (or if you know of anyone). There will be high school tennis player assistant coaches as well . Our Hillview Athletic Director is Huck Hunt, Please visit our tennis team web page at
