We offer a wide variety of tennis lessons for youth ages 5-18 years old, ranging from beginner levels to tournament players. All of our programs are based on USTA’s Junior Competencies and Progressions. Here at FSTC, we take great pride in our program of advancing your child’s love and enjoyment of the game, providing excellent group training followed up by match and league play opportunities.
Our classes are based on skill level rather than age. Players will be evaluated and grouped in programs and on specific courts with other players of similar ability and NTRP rating (for Yellow Ball classes). Periodic evaluations will be conducted and players will progress court by court, program by program, as they become proficient at each level.
Our goal is to provide a steady progression for all children. In order to do so, monthly commitment to a program is required. Additionally, we do not allow “drop-ins” on weekday classes as they often interrupt the progression of groups that have been working consistently over a period of time. We do allow “drop-ins” on Saturday classes.
As a courtesy, please contact Jennifer Toomy at 757-683- 5312 if your child will miss a class. Make-ups may be done on another day of the week with approval or Saturdays within the month. Make-ups do not carry over to the following month.
Below is the schedule of class offerings. Each child is encouraged to attend 2 days each week for maximum progression of their skills. We also encourage participation in competition round-robin style opportunities at Folkes/Stevens, local Junior Team Tennis Leagues and USTA tournaments.
You may call front desk at 757-683- 5312 or stop by front desk to secure your spot. Cash, Credit Cards and checks payable to “ODU” are accepted.
