Tennis Program Schedule and Fees

JUNIOR PROGRAMS

The 2017 season will provide the most comprehensive tennis programs available in the New England area. Directed by Mike Slattery, there IS a program that fits your child’s needs. From “Ten & Under Tennis,” to “High School Tennis,” to “USTA Tournament Tough Training,” these are the most detailed programs offered. Before buying a tennis racket for your child please make sure it is the correct size. (Have the child hold the racket to their side. If it touches the ground it is too big)
