Little Big Tennis is a fun, high energy tennis class specifically designed to introduce the game of tennis through comfortable, parent/teacher/child on court interactions, creative tennis games, instruction and play. Children will build their athletic skills, socialization skills, hand eye coordination, balance, agility and footwork, receiving modified stroke instruction from our USPTA/USPTR Certified Tennis Professionals. This class runs in monthly sessions and meets once a week on Saturdays. Players will learn the fundamentals of tennis, including; Serve, Forehand, Backhand, Volleys, Basic Rules & Scoring, Court Lines/Courts Areas, and stroke progressions that lead to rallies and mini-points with the instructor, parent and/or another player over a mini-net. As players develop, coaches will separate beginners from advanced beginners to introduce more development opportunities. Player graduation and Pro approval are REQUIRED to move to the next level of development.
