TENNIS

In 1924 Port Huron High School first introduced tennis in the form of interclass games at Pine Grove Park. This was played Seniors vs. Juniors and included both girls and boys.

It wasn’t until 1930 when Port Huron High joined the Southwest Michigan League that a formal boy’s tennis team was formed under coach Mills. A steady team wasn’t fielded until the Eastern Michigan League was formed in 1945. Once that happened Port Huron High School had steady competition and coaches.

The team only had four tennis courts in town they could use. The tennis courts they used are: White Park, Pine Grove, Gratiot Park, and Lincoln Park. As interest grew, once again the Port Huron District Foundation came to the rescue and built Memorial Park. Memorial Park had eight lighted tennis courts. The Big Reds Tennis Team was very successful. They won numerous Eastern Michigan League, and Regional Championships.
