Ended Oct 26 - Returning in 2024 - Tiny Stars Information - Starting Again in Sept 5th 2023 - Tue/Thu - 3:30-4:15 - $15/session

  • A great drop-in program to help you new players get a great start to tennis!  We do ask parents to have  consistency in coming if at all possible.  Please let us know if you plan to come both Tue and Thu, or just once a week, etc.  Our goal is 4-6 players per coach - so we can add a second coach when we get higher numbers.
  • We provide the balls, and loaner racquets, but we suggest you purchase a racquet (Walmart/Sports Academy - <$20) after your first session so you can use a loaner, and we can tell you what size will best fit your child.
  • We use the Large Red Tennis Balls - there is a progression in tennis balls as players improve.  Red Balls make the experience better for our Tiny Stars.  
  • Email Coach David at davidjkingsbury@gmail.com to learn more
