Junior & Quick Start Tennis

Ages 3-11

At the Winter Park Tennis Center, we work hard to raise the standards of today’s competitive juniors in both private and group lessons, in a fun and constructive atmosphere. It’s our belief that it takes a tremendous amount of commitment from kids to work at their form every day. It’s for this reason that we believe they should get the most out of every practice, but that they should also have fun. After all, they are still kids!
