Quickstart Tennis (Winter)

This program is an entry-level introduction to tennis for young players from age 3.


What will I learn in this class?
Beginner students (from 3 years old) are introduced to the very basics of tennis. Students use trainer balls and rackets and learn under modern teaching techniques until they can continue rallies and play full games.

What are the benefits of this class?
Smaller courts, lower nets, shorter racquets and balls that bounce lower make learning a new sport less frustrating and more entertaining. Children learn how to play a popular sport that improves fitness and coordination while developing a hobby that could last a lifetime.

Who teaches the class?
The Krissman International Tennis School introduced the US Professional Tennis Association’s Little Tennis program to the Club in 1999. This updated program is taught under the direction of USPTA professional Allen Krissman and by the international team of the Krissman International Tennis School.
