Junior Tennis – Spring 2018

Registration for Spring 2018 will open on February 1, 2018. Our Junior Programs accommodate youth of all levels and abilities by allowing them to develop the fundamentals of the game at an early age and continue the progression to becoming tournament-level players. The UBC Tennis Centre uses a Progressive Tennis methodology where players learn the game through a fun game-based approach with modified courts, rackets and tennis balls.

Fundamental

This program introduces children to their first tennis experience in the most fun and innovative way. By using modified equipment and storytelling, our instructors turn skill-building activities into an hour-long adventure each time. The aim is to capture each child's imagination and keep them attentive the entire class, while developing their basic coordination and tennis skills.

Note: A parent/guardian is required to attend with the child.
