Youth Tennis

Tennis lessons are a great way to learn the game of tennis or to perfect your tennis game.

Whether your child is brand new to tennis or an advanced player, he or she can learn skills and techniques from one of our tennis professionals.

We offer private, semi-private and group clinics for players of all ages and skill levels.

Please be sure to check our Youth Sports Health and Safety page for the latest information and guidelines. 

Youth Lessons & 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.
