Junior Lessons

Active, fun and geared towards getting juniors playing the game like the Pro’s more quickly, our lessons are led by certified coaches utilizing the “progressive tennis” strategy endorsed by Tennis Canada and the ITF; this method uses modified court sizes, tennis balls and racquets to allow players to succeed early and develop a lifelong love of the game, whether recreational or competitive.
