It is designed to develop the games of juniors of all ages and ability levels.

Maintaining a one-to-four ratio, the Club’s tennis professionals and Junior Academy staff strive to give juniors the best instruction, drills and practice available.

U10 - 14 TENNIS:
The development of junior & beginner tennis players at The Racquet Club has been in existence for over 30 years. U10 Tennis is a new format from the USTA to help kids ten and under learn & play the game. To make it easier for them, we changed a few things: court sizes, racquet sizes, balls, scoring system, and even net height. Now any child between ages five and ten can start playing tennis almost immediately-even if he or she has never picked up a racquet before.
