The options for participation and programs listed below are some of the most popular amongst the players at our club.  There are others that are going on at the club throughout the weeks and months, but they may only be a one time or temporary thing. Some of these other activities and programs are designed on fairly short notice but will be publicized upon confirmation of structure, set date and cost.Tennis in Newington-page-003

Almost every program, except signing up for a season court, does not necessarily require a membership, though it would save you money every time you came in if you did get a membership.

We offer private and semi-private lessons which could both also be bought in packages of 5 (which would save about $25 total compared to 5 single lessons) and can be taken at your convenience and what would work for the pro. While the club can facilitate this, much of this process requires the pro and customer to speak or otherwise communicate directly to agree on the day and time of each lesson. Most clinics can also be purchased in packages, but they are generally more set in their schedules.

Adult Intermediate Clinic

The Adult Intermediate Clinic is held on Thursday from 6-7:30PM and is an increasingly popular program that we are offering.

It is a group clinic, which has seen growth in the recent past and isn’t as expensive as a private lesson. If you consider yourself an intermediate and are rusty or are just simply interested in getting better while having a good time with like-minded players, this is for you.

Co-ed class and generally around the 3.0 level or so, but there aren’t any requirements for participation.

Junior Development Program

Want to sign up your child or children for group lessons with kids of similar age and skill level? We have all the bases covered at the Newington Tennis Center. We have 3 program sessions each year. It is okay for you to bring in your child once to see how he/she likes it and pay a one time fee. You can continue to do this throughout the season with some notice given.

History Made! Nishikori Wins In Barcelona (With Video)

I don’t wanna say I told you so but…#KEI

The Newington Tennis Center

Kei Holds The Trophy…Credit to Sky Sports

Kei Nishikori defeated Santiago Giraldo 6-2 6-2 in the finals of the Barcelona Open becoming the first Japanese-born player to win a clay court tournament in ATP history. He is also the first non-Spaniard to win the tournament in 12 years.

Kei has been playing wonderfully and he noted in an interview that it had helped him mentally.

This title and (my run in) Miami helped my confidence, especially this week on clay. There are three big tournaments coming up in Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros so I hope I can do well and increase my (Emirates ATP Rankings) points. My next goal is to get to the Top 10.

Nishikori isn’t all that far away. By winning this tournament, Nishikori improved his ATP ranking to 12th from 17th. Kei, who has been under the tutelage of the famous Michael Chang, is now…
