Junior Tennis

Junior Tennis on Ken-Caryl Ranch

By getting your kids into the game of tennis you’ll be opening a door to a lifetime of enjoyment! Tennis is one of the best ways for kids to become healthy and physically fit. The very nature of the game of serving, returning and rallying makes tennis an active sport with plenty of movement, starts, stops and direction changes. As such, tennis is a great cardiovascular activity, and the movements used on the court help develop enhanced balance, agility and coordination. Mental focus is also sharpened through tennis because decision-making and concentration are necessary every time a ball is hit.

In Junior Team Tennis, the team concept emphasizes fun, fitness, and friends. The focus in this kind of play is on enjoying the exhilaration of exercise and refining the skills that make tennis fun for players at all ages and levels of competition.

• JTT is a 9 week summer program for boys and girls ages 8 to 18 who have passed into the Comp 1 level of lessons.
• Teams are comprised of players of similar gender, age, and skill, and they compete against teams from other facilities on Mondays beginning June 11 to July 23. The four age divisions are:
• 8-10 (Coed) Match Time: M: 8 – 9:30 a.m.
• 11-12 Match Time: M: 9:30 – 11 a.m.
• 13-14 Match Time: M: 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
• 15-18 Match Time: M: 12:30 – 2 p.m.

• If your child ages up to 11, 13 or 15 before August 5, they will be required to play in the older division.
• Within these age divisions, there is a level for beginner (Futures) intermediate (Challenger), and advanced (Championship) players.
