Brock Woods “I love the Bay View tennis program and all it’s done for me”, explains Brock. This 2024 season will be Brock Woods’ 8th year as a tennis instructor for Bay View. He grew up playing Bay View tennis every summer. He played year-round, from middle school and all the way through high school. Brock started JV in his freshman and sophomore years and was pulled up to play a few varsity matches during those years. He moved up to varsity in his junior and senior years and advanced to districts. With Brock as our Tennis Coordinator, it truly will be “fun and recreation for all.”
