kids tennis clinic

Our Philosophy

 “Where Tennis Begins”! Our tennis program focuses on children starting their journey into the world of tennis. Beginners through intermediate at Fitness with Friends Tennis Academy show quick results! After just 4 or 5 group lessons, children as young as 5 years old begin to make contact with the ball and return the ball back to a coach. They get truly excited! 

Our instruction is based on fun and educational training programs and standards developed by the United States Tennis Association and Cheryl Berkowitz, our Tennis Director. We begin by teaching proper technique on both the forehand and the backhand. Solid fundamentals are key in the early development of a tennis player.  We structure our classes so ALL KIDS get to participate – no one is left out!

Our objective is ensure your child builds a love of the sport while learning.  We guarantee your child will benefit from the best tennis has to offer – improved physical fitness, better concentration & confidence, and socialization within a safe and healthy environment.

Our Team

Unlike other tennis programs our team includes primarily younger coaches with significant playing experience and knowledge. Our instructors’ ability to inspire and relate to young children is a key advantage. We have found that younger instructors make a more natural connection with kids – helping them feel comfortable learning and socializing.

Age Groups

We teach kids grades K-8th beginner to Intermediate to develop the skills and confidence to enjoy the sport for a lifetime. Based on our experience, we’ve found that the following three age groups are the ideal mix both socially and strategically for learning the game:

  • Grades K-1

  • Grades 2-3

  • Grades 4-5

  • Grades 6-8
