PAYMENT : due before start day to hold your spot


Players needing a racquet, can use our complimentary adult & junior demos  for the first week.  There is a $10 adult/junior racquet rental fee to continue using these for the session (5 weeks). We can find you the right model based on your budget and level of play. Our prices are competitive, and our advice will save you time and money. The rental fee is deducted from the price of the new racquet, if you decide to purchase. Basic junior racquets cost $25 and up, and adult racquets start at $30.

Players are encouraged to bring tennis sneakers or an equivalent sturdy shoe (not running shoes) that provides good lateral support. Water, a hat and sport sunglasses are helpful.
