Tennis Lessons

We have been offering quality lessons for adults and children for over five decades. Started in 1966, our program is designed to give the best possible instruction at a reasonable cost. It is a comprehensive program that offers the latest techniques and instruction methods by quality instructors with years of teaching experience. Thousands of children in our community have learned to play the great sport of tennis in our program.

Our youth lessons are part of the United States Tennis Association's National Junior Excellence Program. We believe in making tennis fun and teaching it as a "sport for a lifetime."

Our goal is to provide a training and development program that is accessible to every interested person. It is our intention to ensure that there is a pathway to tennis success for people from every background who aspire to learn and enjoy the game.

Our program, which begins the week of June 12 and runs for six weeks, has developed many outstanding junior players who have played high school and college tennis as well as those who simply enjoy tennis as a fun recreational activity.
