All our lessons use the system of modified courts and balls designed by Tennis Canada for the age and/or skill level of the players. Scale appropriate training is used by many other sports (e.g. T-Ball, Mini-soccer, etc.) which makes learning the game easier and allows kids to begin competing immediately.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
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.
