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 tennis and tournament play. 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 are $18/members, $25/non-members, and 90-minute sessions are $22/members, $30/guests. Juniors can become a tennis member for just $15/month.
