Junior Lessons

Group lessons are included in your membership and they are structured around the age and skill-level of the children. A guest fee of $10/day is required for non-members.

We’re making some changes to accommodate outdoor social gathering requirements:

  • The number of participants is capped depending on the lesson
  • Show up the day you would like a lesson and register with one of our volunteers
  • We’ll start accepting registrations 40 minutes prior to each daily lesson
  • It’s first come, first served but if you miss out one day, you’ll automatically be put on the list for the very next day

10 AND UNDER PROGRAM

The Southampton Tennis Club follows the progressive tennis model where the size of the child determines the size of the equipment.

5-7 Year-olds:  Red Ball Program, 36 ft. Court
For children from 5 to 7 years old just starting to play, we offer a full lesson program using low nets, reduced court size, and low-compression balls. The goal is to help kids feel comfortable on a tennis court, grasp basic ball control techniques, and learn the basic rules of play and etiquette. The focus is on fun more than form!

To participate, kids must turn five years of age in the calendar year.

8-10 Year-olds:  Orange Ball Program, 60 ft. Court
For this age group, our lesson program includes reduced court size drills and games, and low-compression balls. Our goal is to introduce the fun and fundamentals of tennis to older children who are new to tennis or have not played much.
