Tennis Program 2022

RED BALL (ages 5-8)

****Please note that if you are signing up your child for red ball class they must be able to follow directions from circle “A” to “B” without being hand held.****

ORANGE BALL (ages 7-9)


 This class continues to use a low compression (orange) ball on a 60ft court. The court size has increased as kids this age can cover more of the court; the ball has more compression than the red ball. Students will continue to develop their strokes and technique in addition to learning the basics of tennis match play and fun tennis games!

GREEN BALL (ages 10-15)


This class is for the older, yet players relatively new to tennis. The green ball has 25% less compression than the yellow ball; hence allowing success in rallying. Students will learn proper technique on all strokes; learn to rally on a full size court; and the basics of match play and fun tennis games.
