Beginner: Our Beginner Tennis Class is tailored for children typically between the ages of 4 and 9 years old. The primary goal of our class is to instill a love for the game of tennis while teaching fundamental skills and techniques. We aim to help children develop their coordination, agility, balance, and tennis-specific movements. Additionally, we focus on fostering teamwork, sportsmanship, and a positive attitude towards both winning and losing.

Class available Session 1, Session 2 and Session 3 from 1:00PM to 1:50PM

Recommended for 4 to 10 years of age.

Intermediate/Advanced: Our Intermediate/Advanced Tennis Class is suitable for children typically between the ages of 10 and 16 years old who have some prior experience with tennis. Designed for those who have grasped the fundamentals of tennis and are ready for a more challenging experience. This class focuses on refining technique, improving consistency, and developing strategic thinking on the court.

Class available Sesson 1, Session 2 and Session 3 from 2:00PM to 2:50PM

Recommended for 10 to 16 years of age.

Placement into the different stages should be based on experience and age. However, there are other important factors such as the height of the child, eye-hand coordination and movement abilities. We encourage parents to put their child in the class that most fits their child, but understand that sometimes the player’s available times just do not correlate to the proper class. In such situations we encourage attempted participation, but ask that participants understand that class curriculum cannot be altered for just one child.
