Should I register my child for Fundamentals or Aces or Performance?

If your child does not have prior experience learning tennis in a formal setting, we highly recommend signing up for Fundamentals.

If you child is playing in Aces or an equivalent program and needs additional challenge, we recommend signing up for Performance.

Can I register my child outside of an age boundary?

Contact Summer Smash Tennis and we can help facilitate registrations outside of the prescribed age boundaries if the students needs additional challenge or is close to satisfying the age requirement.

I am an athletic adult who can naturally RAlly – should I take Adult Beginner (1.0) or a higher level class?

If you want to get the most out of our classes and do not have prior experience learning tennis in a formal setting, we highly recommend signing up for Adult Beginner (1.0). This will allow you to get the most out of our lessons and the structure of our programs.

Do students with different levels of experience receive different instruction?

We differentiate instruction to ensure that all students are working on the right things with the right level of challenge.
