"Storm the Tower"
Thank you for your interest in Lewis-Palmer Ranger Tennis. As a school and a team, we have developed a history of quality tennis teams made up of fine students and athletes. Through a philosophy of sportsmanship and honor, our tennis teams have developed a winning history. The Lewis-Palmer Tennis Program has long been considered among the top high school tennis programs for many years. Success is however not simply the number of wins, placements, trophies and titles. For all the titles cannot replace a positive playing environment, team experience and developing players of good character.

"Tennis is a perfect combination of violent action taking place in an atmosphere of tranquility."
"Tennis is like chess at 90MPH."
"Tennis uses the language of life. Advantage, service, fault, break, love. The basic elements of tennis are those of everyday existence, because every match is a life in miniature."
During each season each player will take their own personal journey, both alone and together as a team. Can each of us improve not only as a player on the tennis court but as a teammate and a person off the court?
Can the skills we learn on court have value and transfer both into the classroom and throughout our daily life?
"I fear no one, but respect everyone."
In order to become better than someone else, we must first become better than ourselves.
"You are never really playing an opponent. You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits. That is real joy."
"When you hit the perfect tennis shot it feels like mind, body and soul are integrated for a perfect moment."
---Billie Jean King---
"Losing is not my enemy.
Fear of losing is my enemy."
It is important to view tennis or for that matter any sport as an experiment. As in any experiment, we may succeed but we also may fail. Failure is not to be seen as negative but simply the opposite side of the same coin. The other side being success. The coin is that of doing, participating and involvement.
"A man who wins is a man who thinks he can."
"Champions are merely contenders who refused to quit."
"Don't let anybody work harder than you do."
The Lewis-Palmer Boys Tennis Team has 5 First Place Regional titles.
Six-time second place Regional finishes.
Placed within the top ten finishes in State several years.
The team has amassed many First and Second place finishes and trophies in season tournaments.
“Tennis can be described as boxing with a ball."
Tennis is reality.
These are challenging times in terms of cyber and virtual addiction. It is important to move more body parts than simply our index finger and thumbs.
Interacting with teammates and the reality of actually participating physically lends great benefit to each player both mentally and physically.
Tennis is a lifelong sport.
As we get older it becomes increasingly more difficult to gather a group of participants needed for many other sports.
For tennis singles, ONLY one other person is needed. For tennis doubles, ONLY three other players are required to play.
Tennis can be played and enjoyed for a lifetime.
Tennis is a safe sport.
The incidences of serious injury in tennis are far below the average sport in occurrence.
With concussions and injury to the brain being among the lowest in incidences among active sports.
