Mr. PeeWee Tennis
This is a national program dedicated to introducing youngsters to tennis. Mr. PeeWee tailors its equipment to the size and needs of children, allowing them to learn the sport quickly, and to have fun and success playing. Recommended for ages 4 to 7 years, Mr. PeeWee introduces equipment, court safety, and basic strokes. All first time participants receive a youth-sized tennis racquet.
Players advance to Super PeeWee upon recommendation of an instructor, as maturity, strength and skills develop. The emphasis is on mastering groundstroke technique from the service line area in addition to volleying and serving skills.
This is the next step in tennis development, and is designed for players that are capable of hitting from the baseline area. The emphasis is on mastering groundstroke technique from the baseline, as well as volleys, overheads and serves. Playing points is also introduced at this level, giving players a chance to use their skills in game situations.
This is the final step in our clinic process, before players advance to the Junior Competitive Program. Basic skills are reviewed, and players are given an opportunity to use their skills in a variety of playing situations. This clinic is a bridge over to competitive tennis, and is a great way to learn how to enjoy playing the game.
