the next step
There are several options for students who have completed tennis classes and who are interested in trying competitive play. Our High Point Adult Leagues run year-around and offer a variety of levels and formats. As players gain confidence, they are encouraged to also get involved in the various metropolitan-wide leagues.
Teens who have completed the classes and are interested in the junior development program, may do so with the pre-approval of their most recent High Point instructor. They should also consider trying out for their school team!
