2016 Junior Tennis

Our junior tennis program is designed for all levels. the program will have three areas of focus this summer. The first focus of the program is the instructional classes. juniors have a choice to come to one, two or three days of tennis each week. match play is the next important area of focus for the juniors to test their skills that they learned in class and play in a tennis match. interclub matches will be held against kalamazoo country club and battle cree country club with one match home against each team and one match away against each team. the last area of focus will be to have fun on court at the tennis events for the kids throughout the summer. drop-ins are also available during the summer, please contact kelly. check our 2016 family fun guide for more information!

interclub matches

PLAYERS at the Rookies, Superstars and Hitters level are all highly encouraged to play in then interclub matches. Match play is a great way to take the skills that are learned in class and put it to the test. parents are asked to help transport their tennis player to the away matches. new this summer, we will be running more match play opportunities in order to prepare for the interclub matches and to help our kids improve their game. we will be running two practice matches before we compete against the other clubs. also during the two away match dates, we will be running a practice match on our home courts to help those players who still need guidance during a match. all match play is complimentary to those who are participating in the glcc tennis program.
