Girls’ Tennis

Gould Academy’s Girls’ Tennis Team engages our athletes with a focus on technique and strategy. Recent winners of the MAISAD Championship, Gould’s players know how to compete and win, combining scholastic excellence with their tenacity on the court.

The Girls’ Tennis Team competes against Kents Hill School, Hyde School, Hebron Academy, Fryeburg Academy, and other tennis programs in New England.

Our tennis facility consists of the Chandler Courts and the Farnsworth Field House, which give our players access to five courts. Student-athletes can strike the ball year-round and compliment their training with endurance sports such as mountain biking and soccer.
