Would you like to be introduced to the sport of tennis? Do you play tennis now and would like to take your skills to a higher level? Our tennis lessons aimed at both children and adults can do both.
With young people we use the USTA Quick Start Tennis program. This program uses new teaching methods and equipment sized to the participant. this ensures that kids will have the time of their lives from the first time they play. Quick Start Tennis is the way to get kids into tennis.
For older players, we use a more traditional approach to build their competence and skill on the courts. The emphasis is on having fun by becoming successful at the game.
For High Schoolers and adults we have developed our "Varsity and Adult Class" which focuses on really developing and practicing skills.
Our classes are taught by an experienced USPTA and PTR Certified Tennis Professional. When she isn't teaching our classes she is the Varsity Tennis Coach at a local high school.
The classes are held on the recently resurfaced tennis courts at Red Oaks Mill Park at Spackenkill Road and Alda Drive.
