Tennis (Fall) 10 & Under Programs


Safety protocols are in place at this time to keep you, your child/ren and staff safe:

  • If you or your child are not feeling well or showing any signs of COVID-19, please do not come to the lesson.
  • Class enrollment is no more than eight students per class or per court.
  • Social distancing will be used during class with court markers.
  • Tennis lesson equipment will be sanitized after each use.
  • Please bring your own water bottle and do not share personal equipment with others.
  • A face mask is not required but may be used if desired.

Please help us limit the number of people in the facility and locker rooms:

  • Please come dressed if possible and arrive no earlier than five minutes before your class is scheduled to start.
  • We are asking for one parent/guardian for each participant in the family to attend the lesson.  If watching on court, we ask you keep the chairs in their locations as they are distanced accordingly for spectators.
  • We are asking that bringing any child/ren not participating in a facility activity be kept to a minimum.  Kidzone will open Oct. 1st as an option for parents who don’t have children participating in lessons.

We so appreciate your help in following these guidelines and protocols. Thank you!
