Youth Tennis Classes - ages 5-12

High Point offers group lessons year-round to children ages 5 & up. Once introduced to the game, players are encouraged to continue playing through progressively more challenging and enjoyable tennis playing formats.

Check out our 2017 tennis classes!

Group lessons are very popular, so don't delay! Classes are taught by USPTA or USPTR certified pros. The "QuickStart" method is used for our youngest IMG 7155players. This includes courts and equipment specially tailored to this age demographic. Every class has an instructional and a play portion, with a class size of generally 4-8 students. To ensure a continuous chain of instruction, it is recommended that students enroll for multiple sessions at the time of initial registration. For example, a student should enroll for a Beginner class in the first session, an Advanced Beginner class in the second session, and an Advanced Beginner II class in the third session.

CLASS LEVELS BASED ON AGE & ANTICIPATED PROGRESSION THROUGH CLASSES:

Youth 5-7 years: PeeWee I, PeeWee II, Pre-Junior Development (PJD) I, PJD II, PJD III

Youth 8-10 years: Beginner, Advanced Beginner I, Advanced Beginner II, Pre-Junior Development (PJD) I, PJD II, PJD III or Future Stars.
