Teen Tennis Stars (Ages 9-14)
“I have been to different classes, but none of them were right for me. Some taught really hard, and some taught very easy. Euro School of Tennis understood my level and taught me according to that. I have improved a lot, and I also plan on playing in a tournament soon.
Thank you Euro Tennis!”
Teen Tennis Stars: Novice Level
Ready to help your child develop a passion for the sport of tennis? Our Teen Tennis Stars program is the perfect way to do just that. Designed for ages 9 – 14 with little or no tennis experience, here we focus on having fun with the game while learning the fundamentals. At the session’s end, they will be skilled at hitting the ball with consistency, allowing them to enjoy a quick game with you or any other player.
We understand that children often learn about sports differently than most adults, so our teaching approach is very different. While we help your child focus on developing a solid foundation of strokes including the forehand, backhand, volley, and serve, we also work to teach, build, and reinforce the good techniques necessary to truly have fun while playing.
For best results, we recommend your child enroll in one private tennis lesson each week to accompany our Teen Tennis Stars program. That will help give them the individual attention necessary to further their game.

Each week, your child will work with his or her instructor as well as up to six other students. If you’re ready to build a teen tennis star in your house, give us a call to learn more about this great program.
Teen Tennis Stars: Intermediate Level
Ready for a real challenge? Our Intermediate Teen Tennis Stars program is the ideal solution. This course is for kids ages 9-14. Students should have had some previous tennis instruction, and they should be able to hit the ball with consistency before beginning the course.
Practice Makes Perfect
If you’d like to get as much as possible out of this clinic, it’s a good idea to take at least one private lesson per week along with our group lessons. While we do provide a ratio of 1 instructor for every six students, the more individual attention you can get as you learn, the better your game will be.
A Strategy Session
The key to any good set is a little strategy, and we’ll work on that quite a bit here. We’ll also focus on cross-court placement as well as services, lobs, and overheads. All of these will help you become a better player in no time.

Mental Toughness of Junior Tennis Players and How Parents Can Help
Parents need to realize that children are incredibly naive and unrealistic. If they miss ONE easy ball in a match, they will tell later that they ALWAYS miss easy balls. I remember watching the match of a 12-year-old girl who afterwards said….
