10-And-Under Tennis
Tuesdays and/or Thursdays, 4-5pm
10 & Under Tennis is an exciting play format for learning tennis, designed to bring kids into the game by utilizing specialized equipment, and shorter court dimensions, all tailored to age and size. The 10 & Under Tennis format works by getting kids into the game immediately. Within the first few sessions, they are actually playing the game, rallying with one another, moving around, and having fun. Scaling the game down to their size helps make the learning process easier and a lot more fun.

By being introduced to this style of play from the start, your kids will gain confidence by experiencing their own immediate progress, making them more enthusiastic about continuing to play and improve. 10 & Under Tennis enables kids to have more enjoyable experiences early on in the learning process and having fun is always a factor in keeping kids involved. It’s the fast, fun way to get kids into tennis, and keep them playing. Choose the Tuesday or Thursday session.

Fee: $40/$32 with CityCard
Session I: Jan. 6 - Feb. 12
