We offer a variety of sessions for all ages.  Our 12 & Under programs are an exciting and fun tennis format for 12 and under kids which started in Europe, came to America as QuickStart, and has been adopted by the USTA as Under 12 Tennis. There are now leagues and tournaments for U8, U10 and U12 kids. The emphasis is on fun! Court size, racquet size, ball, even the net height has been shrunk to make the game kid friendly. Now even younger children can start playing tennis more quickly. The programs include  PeeWee (age 3-4), Red Ball (age 5-8), Orange Ball (age 9-10), and Green Ball (age 11-12). Our 13-18 Developmental programs include Futures (age 12-14) and Challengers (age 14-18).
