Junior Tennis Clinics and Lessons
The Junior Tennis Program at TTR offers five clinics that are open to both members and non-members. The sequence is designed to take students from the fundamentals of tennis through high school competition. The “high performance" program prepares students for more serious tournament play and college tennis. The clinics are based primarily around skill level; age is more of a guideline. Advancement through the program is skill-based and will require instructor approval. If you are unsure which clinic is the best fit, we recommend that you schedule a private assessment lesson to determine which clinic will be most appropriate.
60-minute sessions: $18/members, $25/guests ($22/Heartland*).
90-minute sessions: $22/members, $30/guests ($26/Heartland*).
Central Coast Tennis Academy sessions: $40/members and guests.
Juniors can become a tennis member for just $15/month.
Pre-registration is required. Clinic space is limited to ensure a favorable student/instructor ratio. Please call (805-434-9605) or text (805-712-1922) the Front Desk to reserve your spot before 12pm each day.
