Our Tennis program offers challenging competition between friends and neighbors. Tennis offerings include social events, tournaments, private/group lessons and our very popular junior tennis camp.
The lessons schedule usually begins in late March or early April and extends to the end of October. The junior tennis camps run for 7 weeks during the summer. Each week consists of 4 days of 2.5 hours of instruction and fun. In addition, there are several advanced junior mini camps offered throughout the summer. Come out any morning and you will see 32 kids hitting red, orange, and regulation yellow balls depending on their age and level of play.
