MSCR Tennis Programs-Summer only
USTA Youth Tennis Lessons
Children develop skills according to the United States Tennis Association “Quick Start Tennis” instructional program. The programs include performance objectives, skill drills and fun games.
Youngsters with little or no experience. Eye-hand control, ball control and basic racquet skills are taught, as well as game development, rules and etiquette. Participants play fun games and increase self-confidence as tennis techniques develop.
For new players. Lessons teach basic footwork, grip, forehand and backhand strokes. Good sportsmanship, rules and etiquette also included.
For players who have completed the beginner class or have previous exposure. Emphasis is placed on further development of strokes, service from the baseline, strategy and games.
Middle School Beginner
For new players or players briefly exposed to the game through instruction at school. Class covers the same skills as our other beginner level, but moves at a faster pace for the older student.
Middle School Intermediate
For players who have a basic foundation of the game. Emphasis is on skill refinement and strategy through drills and match play. Players practice volleying techniques, review game strategy and play at the net.
Middle School Advanced Intermediate
Skill development for players who are already comfortable with the basic shots of tennis, and who can play matches. Perfect for students from the Madison Middle School Tennis Leagues.
Youth Friday Team Tennis
Teams are organized at the locations listed below. MSCR provides a coach for each team. If enough participants register, more than one team per location will be formed. A weekly team practice is scheduled based on the participant’s schedules and availability. Teams become part of an MSCR league schedule in partnership with USTA, with both home and away matches. Participants must provide transportation to matches, MSCR staff will try to help coordinate car-pooling.
