Junior Quick Start

Tennis is a sport for life and one that can be learned to play at almost any age.  If you have tried other sports and want to try tennis as a junior youth you can!  Do you know a junior youth that has never played a sport and may be interested now but is concerned they may not make the team?  Maybe you are a junior youth that just wants to learn how to play an outdoor sport.  Tennis is relatively easy to learn to play on a social level. The Junior Quick Start Program is a six week program; includes weekly instruction and a Wilson racquet that will have you playing tennis upon completion. 

The PTC Tennis Professionals will help each of the Quick Start Juniors move into the desired direction of play after the six week program.   

Saturday morning from 10:00-11:00am
