- Courts are made smaller and easier to cover.
- Balls bounce lower and slower, making them easier to hit.
- 3 levels of tennis balls based on age and ability levels.
- Racquets sized for small hands that are easier to grip and swing.

AGES 7-8 - 5:45 pm to 6:30 pm (max 8)

AGES 9-10 - 6:30 PM TO 7:30 PM (max 8)
- Children will be taught the basics of a rally by using forehand and backhand ground strokes so they can hit balls back and forth over the net with a partner after the first session.
- Children will develop the technical skills that will enable them to develop the tactics for different playing situations associated with the game of tennis.
