Junior Clinics:

Hillcrest Tennis Club is excited to offer progressive tennis to it's junior players. Progressive Tennis is a game-based approach to tennis which utilizes scaled courts and equipment to all children to play quickly and successfully. Progressive Tennis is the method of choice for the most successful tennis nations in Europe including Spain and France. Roger Federer is also the spokes Person for Progressive Tennis in Switzerland. This program will be run by our Head Pro, Robert Perri, and his staff of specially selected coaches who have an affinity for youth development.

Most importantly though, the program is FUN!

 

Classes for the spring session will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays starting in the second week of May and run for 6 weeks.  In the case of rain make up classed will be arranged.

Hillcrest's Summer Camps will help your children develop a love for the sport. The Camp is organized by certified professionals who are passionate about youth development.  The camp will focus mostly on developing the skills needed for your children to play tennis on their own by developing their ability to rally, serve, return and keep score.  Fun drills and games will be used to develop proper technique and basics tactics.  Included in the full day camp will also be off court activities which will contribute you the physical skills needed for your children to play the sport more effectively. Camps will run rain or shine.
