Players can begin playing tennis as young as 4 years old!
8U/10U/12U Tennis Clinics
Monroe Sports Center is one of the first facilities in NJ to introduce a tennis program geared specifically towards younger children. Our 10 and Under Tennis instruction takes a new and innovative approach to introducing kids to the game. Balls are lower in compression; they bounce lower and don't move as fast so they are easier to hit. This allows kids time to get to the ball and helps them develop optimal swing patterns. Racquets are sized for small hands, and the courts are smaller and easier to cover. This all equals more fun and less frustration, allowing children to start rallying and playing points immediately.
The scheduling and pricing of the MSC 10u Tennis program is targeted towards parents not only looking for top notch tennis instruction, but also towards parents looking for activities for their young kids to get exercise, have fun and meet new friends.
8 & Under Red Ball
This fun filled program will introduce your child to the game of tennis in an energetic and success oriented environment. The primary focus will be on developing tennis motor skills through a variety of creative and entertaining tennis games and challenges. Special red low compression balls and smaller courts are used based on the child's age and level. Children will be placed with similar age groups and abilities.
10 & Under Orange Ball
This program is for those students who have graduated from our Red Ball program or have prior tennis experience and is designed for children to start playing points immediately. Orange low compression balls will be utilized to provide success and correct repetitive stroke mechanics. Our Orange Ball program teaches our students the basic skills of hitting balls over the net and playing points as well as making tennis fun.
12 & Under Green Ball
This program is degisned for those students who demonstrate a basic knowledge of stroke technique; they can serve, rally and volley consistently with orange balls. Due to their age and ability level, these players have proven that they are ready to be promoted to play on a full court. The green dot ball is the highest level of the transitional balls. While it bounces higher and faster than both a red and orange ball, it is still lower compression than a regular ball, thus allowing the student to adjust to covering a full court. The emphasis of this clinic will be to coach students to further develop their tennis technique and ball control. They will be introduced to the basics of court positioning and strategy and will learn how to play out points using proper tennis scoring, all of which will help to prepare them for participation in our popular Green Ball Junior Tennis League.
