Nikki's Tennis Crew JUNIOR and ADULT Spring Classes:
Junior classes at other times can be arranged with a minimum
of 4 students. First Junior Class FREE. Junior Team Tennis: Parents who are interested in having their children play team
tennis, please contact me.
Quickstart Junior Classes are classes on modified courts for younger kids. The
juniors play from doubles alley to doubles alley over a small net and with balls that
are bigger and have a slower bounce. It is wonderful to see the younger kids have
rallys. The equipment and courts are tailored to suit their needs and abilities,
kids will feel confident as soon as they pick up a racquet.
Rally League Classes are for juniors who want competition at a modified level.
Matches are played with modified nets and balls. The juniors get solid knowledge of
how matches are played.
Private Tennis Lesson are great for those of you who want personalized
attention to improve your tennis game. I have a couple weekly spots available. Monthly
lessons are great to if you need little touch ups.
