Past Boys Tennis State Champions

Alabama High School Tennis

    Tennis has been played on the high school level in Alabama for many years. The first sanctioned state championship was in 1945 with Woodlawn taking home the trophy that spring.

     All teams in the AHSAA competed in a single classification until 1978 when they split the classes into two divisions with 4A and 1A-3A both competing for a championship.

     In 1991 the schools were once again split according to enrollment with 6A, 5A and 1A-4A competing. Another division came in 1996 when 4A competed as a single classification.

     The school still compete in four classifications but many more schools have joined the sport since those early days in the court.

     Today each April most every school in the state joins in with a chance to win a championship in one of the classifications in the AHSAA.

    Following years of research, in June of 2007 the website became a reality. Many people have gotten involved to assist us  with research of the schools and teams to make this a reality.

    Other team sports have joined football as a part of our research. Initially will include information about coaches, state playoffs, all state teams, player awards and team records.

    It is virtually impossible to provide scores for every  game for every team. Who knows, later even that may be a possibility. There is still a lot of work to do with the all state teams of years past but our intentions are to find every team.

    We encourage everyone to get involved in helping us provide the most accurate information possible. If you have information that would be useful to us please let us know.
