Descriptions of Programs
Pre-Tennis: Net Generation Tennis format introduces our youngest children to tennis skills in a non-threatening manner, developing eye-hand-ball skills which progress easily into racquet handling. Racquets and courts are tailored to a child's size. Slower and lower bouncing red balls ease a child into moving to the ball and rallying over the net. A variety of fun, fast- paced games, with every child constantly involved, introduce the forehand, backhand, volley, serve, and footwork. Children participate in rotation through various skill stations, then small group contests, and finally games that introduce scoring and rallying.


Ten & Under Tennis: Introduces tennis to children based on age, physical size and ability. By modifying the court dimensions (36 feet or 60 feet in length), using appropriately sized tennis racquets and slower bouncing balls, beginners progress rapidlyChildren who have progressed to rallying 4 or 5 times over the net with the red felt balls on the 36' court will be advanced to the orange ball 60' court. With success on the 60' court, the wiyll progress to the full yellow ball 72' court. ALL children will be introduced to game play. They will learn simple scoring, match play, & good sportsmanship.

Competitive Tennis: helps young teens progress quickly from beginner to full court competitive games. They receive an extra half hour of match play, plus many kids remain at the courts to play with their friends. Healthy outdoor fun and exercise! Learning tennis with their peers, many of these players go on to play USTA JR Team Tennis and High School Varsity Teams.
