• We First Serve!!

     

     

     

     

    We love teaching tennis and the life skills that apply on and off the court.

  • We First Serve!

      We love to share the fun and freedom of movement with kids and adults. We teach fierce competition tempered with good sportsmanship.

    Our lesson plans and competitions are based on the latest research and guidelines from the top youth sports and tennis programmers in the country.

    We understand that kids learn more when they are having fun and that kids are less likely to quit sports, when sports are fun.

    We teach fundamental athletic skills that apply to all sports. We support multisport athletes.

    Our goal is to make tennis more accessible and more fun to more people, especially kids!

    Please feel free to contact our tennis director, Chip Fazio, USPTA Elite Professional, with any questions or concerns at all. chipfazio@gmail.com 313-670-3277 (cell)

      Tennis is the sport of lifetime.

    Tennis has a low risk of concussion.
