The Kingswood Oxford varsity boys tennis team will host the 47th Annual Kingswood Oxford Invitational Tennis Tournament (KITT) this weekend starting Saturday.
The tournament is dedicated to the memory of Timothy Berman, '78. Play starts at 8:45 am both days, and there are four singles draws and two doubles draws.
The field includes Kingswood Oxford as well as Hall, Hotchkiss, Westminster, Choate, Lawrenceville (NJ) , Groton (MA), and Deerfield Academy.
The Wyverns won the tournament three consecutive years before Groton won the title last season.
“The KITT is a remarkable collection of high school tennis teams, many of whom compete on a yearly basis for New England titles,” Kingswood Oxford coach Andy Krugman said. “Last year Groton was the best team from top to bottom, and made it to the finals of the Class A Tournament.”
The tournament serves as kind of an unofficial kickoff to the Spring tennis season and has become a popular weekend on the schedule.
“The tournament has a great feel, and even though it is an early season, non-binding tourney, it is something all the schools look forward to,” Krugman said. “And it is dedicated to the memory of Timothy Berman. '78, who left a legacy of sportsmanship and great play.”
