Junior Tennis Clinics
QuickStart Tennis is an exciting new play format for learning and playing tennis. It is designed to bring kids to the game by utilizing smaller racquets, slower and lighter balls, shorter court dimensions and modified scoring — all tailored to the age and size of the child.
Tiny Tots (Ages 3 - 4) - QuickStart program for children with little or no tennis experience. The goal is to have children learn and experience tennis while having fun with children of their own age and skill level. Smaller racquets, 25% compression balls, and lower nets are used in order to create a fun, non-threatening introduction to the game.
Little Lobsters (Ages 5 - 6) - QuickStart program designed to build upon the fundamentals taught in the Tiny Tots Program. Smaller racquets, 50% compression balls, and lowered nets are used.

Hot Shots (Ages 9 - 10) - QuickStart program using 25"-27" racquets and 75% compression tennis balls. Emphasis on point construction and basic strategy to ready players for competition. Continued focus on refining serves, topspin ground strokes, consistency and volleys.
