All our lessons use the “Progressive Tennis” system of modified courts and balls designed by Tennis Canada for the age and/or skill level of the players. Scale appropriate learning is used by many other sports (e.g. T-Ball, Mini-soccer, etc.). Tennis is learned faster and easier through this system.

  

RED BALL: This program introduces the foundational skills of tennis with an oversized low-compression ball on a smaller court. Players learn basic rally, serve and net play skills along with activities that build tennis specific coordination. Rules of play and “I am a Good Sport” behaviours are also introduced.

  • Wednesday 4-5pm
  • Saturday 9-10am
  •  Sunday 9-10am

ORANGE BALL: This program is played on a ¾ size court with a low-compression ball. Players learn how to serve, rally, score and play at the net. “I am a Good Sport” behaviours are reinforced.
