Our program is designed to suit players from any age group and level of play, whether they are a beginner tennis, intermediate or advanced player. We focus on fundamental skills for beginners and intermediate players by improving their technical and tactical skills. These are the fundamentals of the game, and through a 4 step method used by our coaches starting with ball dropping, hand tossing, racket feeding, and rallies, we develop their skills targeting their errors in specified drills. Each clinic we train our players on a particular skill or stroke, using equipment and the correct court size/ball level in order to give them a chance to hit the ball and work on that given stroke.
With the support of our partners, the USTA( United States Tennis Association ) providing us with training equipment. All tennis courts used for the weekly clinics and seasonal camps are reserved through Facilitron, which allows us to continue developing our players by assuring us the use of the courts we need.

The Test to move on to the Orange level
In order to move on from the red ball up to the orange ball, you will have to complete a test which will demonstrate the general objectives you should have completed in the course. For the test, you will get five attempts at having a rally of 10 or more shots using the red ball at half-court. The five attempts will be five different feeds from the instructor which will start the point, if the tennis instructor hits the ball out it does not count against the student’s rally.
We run multiple programs all year long such as the weekly youth and adult clinics, private tennis lessons, seasonal camps, our self run tournaments, and other programs which you can see in the programs section of this website. We aim to create a world where players from different experience and playing backgrounds gather for the same objective; to learn, receive good practice, and master their skills to build confidence for a stronger, competitive mindset.

For players starting to learn tennis this program is our lowest level, and is typically for ages 5-7 years old . The red ball is bigger, and made with less pressure so the pace of the ball is much slower, it does not bounce as high, students in this age group are not required to hit the ball in one bounce. Players will be using 19-23 inch rackets as there is not as much power needed as in other ball types, and typically kids in the Red Ball clinic don’t have the strength to hold bigger rackets. The students play on a 36’ long and 48’ wide court which is the size of the half court determined by the service line, this is to give kids a better chance of having a rally and learn control through doing so.
