JUNIOR TENNIS INSTRUCTION     
        

​This is a new international trend in developing young players. Just like in many sports, the game is scaled appropriately for the size of the child. Players in the Progressive Tennis Programs use scaled down racquets, courts and balls. Our coaches will let players know when they have sufficiently mastered the skills to progress into the competitive programs.
