Teen/Adult Tennis Classes

Register now for 2017 classes!

Our Teen and Adult classes will teach you the correct 'stance,' groundstrokes, overheads, volleys, and serves. Each class has a minimum of four students and a maximum of eight. Players are encouraged to continue learning and playing through progressively more challenging courses.  With each class, our pros spend more time on point-play like situations.

For Teens, the sequence is: Beginner, Advanced Beginner I, Advanced Beginner II, Learn N Play or High Performance Junior Development.

For Adults, the sequence is: Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Learn N Play, High Point intra-facility leagues, and then, if interested, team play (participating in USTA, TCD, or Metro leagues).  If interested in team play, please contact High Point for more information.
