Leveled Lessons 
  • Starting with low compression balls, using smaller racquets on smaller courts, children are able to play tennis sooner.  
  • The focus starts with play, then shifts to skill development and strategy. 
  • As the child's development progresses they move to the next level, where the balls get faster, the racquets and courts get larger.  
  • *Pending instructor approval, progression from one level to level will vary from child to child. 
  • Students are leveled according to ability to serve and maintain a cooperative rally. 
  • Primary focus is development of fundamental skills for the beginner. 
  • Emphasis on development of advanced strokes, court strategy and match play for the more experienced player.
