Red Ball Tennis Lessons (Ages 5 – 8)
A kids sized introduction to what could be the sport of a lifetime! Your little tennis pro will receive instruction in an approachable and supportive environment. Students play with junior rackets and low-bouncing balls on a reduced court allowing them to more easily make contact and sustain a rally. Students will focus on learning the fundamentals in order to establish a future of success. Students are encouraged to bring their own racket.
Orange Ball Tennis Lessons (Ages 9 – 10)
At this stage of the game, players will continue to develop their skills and athleticism by use of an orange ball designed to travel more slowly and bounce lower. Here, players receive lessons on a regulation net, but on a court shorter in length than standard. With these modifications and junior rackets youth find continued success on the court and progress at their own pace. Students are encouraged to bring their own racket. Click here to register.
Green Ball Tennis Lessons (Ages 9 – 12)
Using green balls with a slightly reduced bounce height, students ready for more of a challenge are transitioned to the full size 78-foot regulation court. With continued supportive coaching it won’t be long until students’ progress to the regulation yellow balls, the same as the pros! Students are encouraged to bring their own racket.
