Family Tennis Clinics
In response to your requests for flexible programs that involve the entire family or different family members from week-to-week, we have created a new program to meet your needs, Family Tennis Clinics. Family Tennis Clinics run indoors from October to May.
Instruction may be private, semi-private or a small group. Basically, you agree to use 1 or 1.5 hours to receive instruction. As an example, your 8 year old son plays for 30 minutes and your 14 year old daughter plays for 30 minutes. Another example is father/son, mother/daughter. You may choose to play together, or separately. Remember this is your time, so if after a few weeks mom and dad want to take lessons - that's ok too.
Includes beginner through tournament level players. Classes are grouped by age/level with an average of four students. We provide a fun and fast paced environment where the development of skills and a love for competition is nurtured. Ages 10-18 for Juniors, and all ages for adults.
Tryouts are required for all new students.
Quick Start Tennis
An exciting new format for ages 5-10 for learning to play tennis. We use smaller courts, racquets, special low-pressure balls and modified scoring. The goal is to have fun and to begin playing during the very first class. The USTA has adopted their program for use throughout the country. Coach Nerenberg’s background as a Physical Education Teacher, High-School and College Coach make him uniquely qualified for this program. He has used Quick Start principles for the last 40 years, and found them to be a great way for young children to learn the game as they have a great time and a terrific workout.
