10-and-Under Tennis Program

All-Stars 10-and-Under Program

This program is a fun and enjoyable structured program, designed exclusively for young children aged 3 1/2 to 10, and focusing on moving them through the transitional stages of tennis.. The program consists of fun-filled group lessons designed to teach the techniques of tennis while giving children a fun, hands-on learning experience.
We use ‘kid-friendly’ equipment including smaller racquets, courts and nets, and specialized balls that move slower and bounce lower. Children are closely grouped according to age and playing level, to optimize the learning experience for all involved. They learn all the basic tennis skills through a variety of fun games and activities, while improving their overall coordination and athleticism.

Each level has specific goals with corresponding lesson plans, and children progress through the levels at their own pace, according to these goals.

We also offer mezzanine viewing so you can hear, as well as see your child progress in the sport.
