SUMMER JUNIOR PROGRAMS

We are proud to partner with Winning Touch Tennis of Allentown to run our junior programs. Each member of their teaching staff is a career instructional professional certified by either the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) or the United States Professional Tennis Registry (USPTR).

The junior programs are organized according to ages and skill levels which are designated by different colored balls, often referred to as the ROG (Red, Orange, Green) and Yellow Ball Programs developed by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).

Red Ball

Ages 5 – 9:   This class is designed for the youngest players as an introduction to the game of tennis. Red balls bounce lower and move more slowly through the air, giving beginners a chance to set up and take a good swing at the ball. Two sessions, both six weeks, will be held on Mondays, 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The first session will start on June 10, 2024, and the second will begin on June 22, 2024.  To register for RED BALL, click HERE.

Orange Ball

Ages 8 – 12:   When comfortable at the red level, players graduate to playing at the orange level. Orange felt balls bounce higher and move faster than the red balls, but lower and slower than the green balls. Two sessions, both six weeks. will be held on Mondays, 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM. The first session will start on June 10, 2024, and the second will begin on June 22, 2024. To register for ORANGE BALL, click HERE.

Green Ball

Ages 8 – 12:   When comfortable at the orange level, players graduate to playing at the green level. The green ball is very similar to the traditional yellow tennis ball, but has a slightly lower compression so it rebounds lower off the court after a bounce. Two sessions, both six weeks, will be held on Mondays, 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM. The first session will start on June 10, 2024, and the second will begin on June 22, 2024.

Yellow Ball

Ages 12 – 18:   This class is for older juniors.  The yellow ball class will be divided into groups based on how much on-court experience the junior has. Traditional yellow tennis balls are used. Ten sessions, each four days, will be held Monday through Thursday, 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM. The first session will start on June 10, 2024, continuing each successive week with the final session beginning on August 12, 2024. To register for YELLOW BALL, click HERE.
