Players can begin playing tennis as young as 4 years old!
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.
10 & 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.

So if you know in advance that you will have to miss a class, you can just not select those dates and select your makeups (if you want) on other days of the week. You will only be charged for the classes you select. If you register for anywhere from 1-11 classes as a non-member, you will be charged the single class rate ($25/class). If you register for 12 or more total classes as a non-member, you will be charged the discounted full season rate ($22.50/class = $270 for 12 classes). If you are a member, you will pay $20/class regardless of how many you register for.
