Youth Tennis Programs

Summer 2018

The Southington Recreation Department will offer four sessions of youth tennis lessons and match play programs this summer. Each session meets Monday through Thursday for two weeks using Fridays as rain dates, if necessary.

  • Intro to Tennis: Open to Southington residents age 3 only (must be 3 years old by the first class date). A smaller, lightweight racket will be provided. This program will introduce children to the sport using games and lightweight foam balls, and will help them to become comfortable handling a racket.

  • Tennis Lessons:  Open to Southington residents ages 4-18. A smaller, lightweight racket will be provided for students ages 4-9. Students ages 10-18 must bring their own rackets.

  • Intro to Match Play: Open to Southington residents ages 7-14. This program is for students who have previously taken lessons and feel comfortable with the skills they have learned, but are not yet experienced in playing or scoring matches on their own against their peers. A coach will guide the students through match play each day and will also provide instruction on serving techniques. Smaller, lightweight rackets will be available for younger students (ages 7-9) to use, if desired; otherwise, students must bring their own rackets.

  • Match Play:  Open to Southington residents ages 7-18. Students enrolled in this program must already have knowledge of the game and how to play matches against other students using proper scoring. A coach will be on site, but will not be providing instruction. The purpose of the program is to allow experienced tennis players to play against each other in an organized setting. All students must bring their own rackets.
