Kids’ Tennis Clubs 

Currently offered through Kitsilano and Douglas Park Community Centre.

ages 5-6

The first introduction to Tennis is a foundational program that helps kids develop the skills to rally and play with their coach, parents and friends. Following the Progressive Tennis Model players will use the soft Red teaching ball, a smaller court, lower net, and correctly-sized racquets.

Ages 7-8

This program is divided into two stages.

  • Stage 1: Red Ball for the Beginner-player who has no lesson experience or has never played before

  • Stage 2: Orange Ball for the player who has taken the Red Ball Beginner previously or the 5-6 years program

Following the Progressive Tennis Model players in both stages will use the soft Red or Orange ball, a smaller court, lower net and correctly-sized racquets. Players will learn how to rally all strokes in a cooperative setting and practice/play with a partner. Fun, low-key competition will be a part of the lessons. We aim to show students that tennis is a game to enjoy through how you play and interact, whether you win or loose.
