Well, what crazy times we are all living through these days! Like most others, our business was shut down mid-March for the pandemic. Fortunately, they discovered that tennis is one of the safest sports to play at this time, and we were able to start back with summer camps in June. We did brainstorm and research and came up with many new procedures to try to keep everyone as safe as possible. You can read our new “Back to Play” protocol here. We’re happy to share that we made it through the whole summer without any issues.
So, we are excited to announce that we will be resuming our afterschool clinics starting September 8! We will have four 4-week sessions this season for kids ages 5 to 18 and levels beginner to advanced. We use the Quickstart programming and equipment for ages 5-12, and we have four full-time teaching pros on staff. The session dates are: Sept. 8-Oct. 1, Oct. 5-Oct. 29, Nov. 2-Nov. 24, Nov. 30-Dec. 22.
- Our beginner clinics are 45 minutes long and the cost is $175 per 4-week session or a discounted rate of $550 for all four months. Start times for beginner clinics are 3:30, 4:15, 5:00, and 5:45 pm. Specific age groups are listed on the registration form.
- Intermediate/advanced classes are 90 minutes long starting at 3:30, 4:15, and 5:00 pm. The cost for this longer clinic is $265 per 4-week session or a discounted rate of $910 for all four months.
As always, clinics are Monday through Thursday and most kids are able to attend 2-3 clinics per week. We base our rates on this, but we leave our schedule open and encourage as much participation as possible. The kids see much quicker progress with more court time! There is no additional fee to come all four days whenever your schedule allows. We also do rain makeup days on Fridays, whenever we have two or more rainouts within a week. We will send an email as well as a text message to communicate cancellations.
