Kids Tennis

Kids tennis introduces the sport of tennis in a fun and interactive way and ensures immediate success for player’s age 6-12 years old. Using softer balls, smaller courts and age appropriate racquets, it is now easier to learn to play a sport for life.

Kids are grouped according to age and skill level where they are coached using the red, orange or green balls on the appropriate court size. In the event of a difference in age or skill level, you will be contacted before the session starts.

What is Tennis Express?

Watch this to learn more!

Starter players are defined as those who:

  • Are beginners to tennis who have never played tennis before
  • Have received basic coaching, but have never played the game outside of a coaching environment
  • Players returning to tennis after a long absence

The aim is to help starter players to serve, rally and score (play the game) from the first session and to ensure that by the end of the session you will be able to:

  • Know the basic techniques, tactics and the rules of tennis
  • Play competitive points using the green ball on a full court


You must register for a minimum of any 4 classes. Registration by phone or in-person only. Call 457-2382 to register. There is limited space in each class.

Payments must be made by phone or in-person before the first class.

Time: 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm (kids tennis) and 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm (adult and teen tennis)
