Junior Tennis Program

Missouri City Parks & Recreation is proud to offer a Junior Tennis Program to serve the youth of our community.  Tennis is a sport for a lifetime that enhances fitness, problem solving ability and social skills, all while providing the opportunity to have fun and make new friends.  We offer classes for all ages and all levels, from after-school tennis programs to special weekend clinics. Students participating in our Junior Tennis Program will be placed in appropriate classes based on their respective ability levels.  Our tennis pros will assign students after completing an individual assessment of their tennis fundamentals.

Quick Start: 10 & Under Program
This program gets kids moving, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and teaches self-confidence and self-assurance.  Your child will enjoy playing with balls that bounce lower and move slower through the air, making them easier to hit, as well as cover a court that is appropriate for their size.  Our goal is to instill in your child a LOVE of the game, teach proper stroke mechanics, and emphasize good sportsmanship at all times.  We group our 10 and under players according to skill level and age.

Junior Academy (ages 8 - 16)
Different levels of sessions have been compiled to fit each student in the appropriate level. Our professionals will assess your child based on their playing ability and place them on an appropriate team to maximize their skill growth and improvement.

Grand Slam 1 (ages 10 and under)
This class is dedicated to get your child from learning the basics to implementing the basics through tournament play. Kids in this group know how to keep score, rally at a slow pace & have the willingness to compete in 10 & Under Tournaments.

Grand Slam 2 (ages 11+, or 10 and under advanced)
The goal of this class is to retain your child's interest through proper instruction, and of course keeping the game fun! In this Elite Level 1 class we will encourage the kids to refine their technique and get them ready to compete in middle school or high school competition.
