Lessons for Kids

MTC Junior Members Only!

(everyone under the age of 18)

MTC is a non-profit club, run by member volunteers. Our junior members are the future of tennis in our community so we developed this weekend program just for them! We want kids to play tennis and have fun! Because the Club is subsidizing the cost of these lessons, we ONLY offer them to MTC members. Since tennis is a game that parents and children can play together why not join as a family?

Join the Club and then register for Saturday Morning Progressive Tennis.
