Adult Lessons and Clinics

The YMCA partners with Planting Performance, LLC to offer Planting Performance at the Y instructional programming for beginners, juniors, adults, collegiate and advanced players. Planting Performance focuses on enhancing technical tennis abilities, while also emphasizing the mental and physical strength components.

This collaboration brings a new level of tennis instruction to the Y, with broadened program offerings that include opportunities for a wide range of our YMCA membership and Triangle community.
