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 will have 4 program sessions in the 2018-2019 season. It is okay for you to bring in your child once to see how he/she likes it and pay a one time drop-in fee. You can continue to do this throughout the season with some notice given. Furthermore, even if you have missed the start of the program and would like to sign-up your kid, we can prorate the price for the amount of classes left. Call-in to inquire.
