Beginner to intermediate level instruction for the recreational player offered in 6 to 7 week sessions during the school year. Tennis Academy of the South is a registered provider of USTA’s new Net Generation. TAS staff teach “right sized tennis” for kids of all ages. We use USTA’s Net Generation format, curriculum and resources to help kids learn new ways to experience tennis. Our focus is on getting kids ready to compete and have fun playing. Youth Tennis includes 2 major divisions: 10 & Under Tennis for kids ages 5 to 10 and Junior Development for juniors ages 11 to 18.

 

10 & Under Tennis | Ages 5-10 | Recreational Player Beginner | Weekdays After School

Introductory program geared for the young recreational player. Innovative and fun instruction using the USTA’s Net Generation program enables kids to learn while playing real tennis to scale. Simple lead up activities and modified courts, nets and balls introduce our youngest students to the skills needed to play tennis successfully. TAS staff emphasize team work and cooperation. Six and seven week sessions are offered weekdays after school August through May. Enrollment is open to beginners ages 5 to 10.
