Try Tennis Clinics - Adults

The Try Tennis program is an instructional program for adult beginners and it’s a great, affordable way to learn the fundamentals of tennis while making new friends.

The Try Play program is a follow-up to Try Tennis. It allows players to learn the ins-and-outs of playing a tennis match. These play-to-learn sessions consist of 50% play and 50% instruction, allowing you to play a match with little to no assistance when you are done.

This program is most ideal for Try Tennis graduates and beginner tennis players, that have very little match play experience, who are rated 2.5 and below, and are not registered with the USTA.
