Jack Andre is a Yarmouth native and a 2018 graduate of Sturgis Charter Public High School. He played on the varsity tennis team all four years and finished his senior year with a 17-1 singles record in the Cape & Islands League. He posted a 69-3 individual singles record in high school, captained the tennis team as a junior and senior, and was named the Cape and Islands League Most Valuable Player as a senior. He recently completed his Freshman year at Union College, Schenectady, New York, where he studies economics and mathematics and plays on the Men's Tennis Team. He participated in the South Yarmouth Tennis Juniors Program, in his early years, where he was able to develop his skills in a competitive setting. Jack taught in the Yarmouth Parks & Recreation summer tennis program for six years at Sandy Pond.
“Having coached Jack for his 4 yrs of high school tennis, and supervised him for the last 2 summers at the Yarmouth Parks & Recreation Tennis program, I can attest to the fact that he will be a welcomed addition to the SYTC staff,” said Ken Huckins, SYTC Associate Manager. “The enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to play high-level tennis that Jack brings to the club will be a big plus in attracting young players.”
“You could tell that Jack was a special player from the start,” said Doug Leonard, SYTC Head Pro. “Jack’s natural ability and his willingness to learn quickly elevated him to be one of the best players in the Juniors clinics at SYTC. It will be a privilege to have Jack back - now as an instructor, in the SYTC family.”
