The City of Coral Springs will be offering a full slate of tennis programs for the fall season beginning the week of August 29 and running through September 24, 2016.
The comprehensive program, conducted at Cypress Park and the Tennis Center at the Sportsplex, includes various programming for children and adults of all ages and ability levels. Classes are held both weekdays after school and on Saturdays, and there are no classes during holidays.
The Junior Program will offer group lessons (4-week sessions) starting with USPTA Little Tennis (4-6 year old) continuing thru the Junior Tennis Academy for the more advanced students. Entry into the Junior Academy program requires an evaluation. Beginner students are placed in classes according to age (7-10 or 11-14), while all other students are placed according to ability level. The program for children under 10 years old utilizes the softer tennis balls and shorter rackets, also known as the Quickstart program, to help them achieve success more quickly. Advance registration is required, as many classes will fill up quickly. Information regarding days and times of classes are available at www.cstennis.org or on our Facebook Page.
The Adult Tennis program will include group lessons for all ability levels as well as private lessons by appointment. There are also weekly drill classes on Monday mornings from 9:30 to 11 a.m. and Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Advanced registration is required as these classes often fill up. The program also includes league play for men and women, both daytime and nights. There will be various social Round-Robins and Friday Night Mixed Doubles tennis.
All tennis instruction is provided by USPTA Certified Professionals. New sessions begin every 5 weeks, except during Winter and Spring breaks, when there is a special day camp offered. For more detailed information regarding any of the tennis programs, please call 954-344-1840.
