Towpath's beginner clinics are designed for juniors to learn "kid-size" tennis and progress as their skills improve. Young players will learn the fundamentals to tennis and all the different shots. They will learrn how to work hard, and the rules of the game. Most importantly, we want to help them develop a passion for the game of tennis.
Using the USTA 10 & under format, the equipment has been modified and allows players to advance to larger courts and regular tennis balls as their skills develop. New players can advance from our 10 & under program, to the Junior Clinic or Tournament Training programs. Committed players can use this pathway towards success on high school teams, USTA tournaments, and rankings.
