Group Tennis Lessons

Our 2021 small group tennis programs will follow a similar model to last year. Groups will be limited to 15 participants and programs will be run in compliance with all state and CDC guidelines for safety and to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Further details are below. We are asking tennis members to sign up for a "window of time" so that we can manage group sizes while also considering age and ability.

 

Private lessons with our tennis pro Lindsay continue to be available for tennis members ages 4 and up. Additionally, our Tennis Assistant Ben Atkinson is available to hit balls with tennis members age 13+.
