Clinic for children ages 8-10. The program is designed to introduce the fundamentals of tennis. Players will learn the correct mechanics of each stroke, proper court positioning, and movement, as well as sound strategies for future growth and development. All basic techniques will be reinforced constantly through coordination exercises, competitive fun games, and singles & doubles play.
The clinic will be centered primarily on the use of red, orange and green dot balls that are 75% 50% and 25% slower than the regular yellow ball respectively.
