Are both the following sentences grammatical?

1- If any students are interested in joining the tennis team or any additional sports team(s), they should contact the school authority.

2- If any student is interested in joining the tennis team or any additional sports team(s), they should contact the school authority.

Both sentences are grammatical. It would be more natural to say or any other team(s). "Sports" would usually be understood from context but you can leave it in if you need to distinguish sports from, say, chess or debate.

What do you mean by "school authority"?

"School authority" is vague. You should clarify it with a specific department or authority.
