Tennis Whizz provides the perfect start to get your child ready for Junior Tennis and a lifetime of active fun. It is not specifically aimed at making your three year old into the next Grand Slam Champion.

Tennis Whizz lessons are based on six broad concepts so that children develop more than just tennis skills:

SPACE: Tennis is about keeping a ball in a given space, and we learn to make the ball go over nets and barriers, changing ball height and understanding – in and out.
OBJECTS: Having mastered space, we start to control objects within it. In tennis, this is usually a ball and racquet, but we include a variety of other equipment such as balloons and scarves.
PEOPLE: We learn about the existence of others, learning to cooperate, play and compete.
BRAIN: We develop our Set4School skills to get a head start on school.
BODY & MOVEMENT: We learn fine motor skills which are the basis of all athletic endeavors.

Tennis Whizz focuses on learning through play and developing active habits that help your child build the skills that they need for starting school. Every lesson includes key skills around
literacy and numeracy, called Set4School skills such as letter sounds, numbers, rhyming, shapes & colors.

After class, the Set4School skills are repeated in a take home activity sheet and bedtime story. Children learn as they play, draw and listen and Tennis Whizz provides the perfect environment for pre-school learning.

Discovery is for the beginner tennis player to develop the important skills of hand-eye coordination and agility. The program introduces tennis vocabulary and the rules of the game. It is facilitated in a fun and encouraging setting that develops social skills and promotes team spirit.

The program uses 75% slower foam tennis balls that bounce at a level proportionate to a child’s height to allow better and longer rallies, encouraging the development of all-court games, racquet skills, physical awareness and confidence.

Discovery follows the ITF’s Progressive Tennis system of scaled training and competition for kids which is the development method of choice in the majority of the world’s leading tennis nations. Roger Federer is the spokesperson for Progressive Tennis in his home country. It is an exciting play format designed to bring kids into the game by utilizing modified equipment, shorter court dimensions and modified scoring, all tailored to age and size.

Players get to understand why they lose matches as a key foundation for winning them. This program is designed for players who aspire to play on their high school JV or Varsity teams. Our goal is to equip them physically, mentally and tactically to be confident competitors.
