Summer 2016 Junior Tennis


Summer schedule starts on June 24

Our Summer Instructional program is designed to teach players the fundamentals of tennis.  All of our groups are "game based" in other words they are designed, as much as possible, with the idea of imitating the same conditions that are present in real match play.  Our number one mission at GFS&T is to provide every players with a nurturing and motivating atmosphere that is conducive to learning the "sport of a life time" in the shortest amount of time possible. Training covers all the basics in stroke mechanics, score keeping, rallying elementary strategies and tactics as well as match play. We also, put a very heavy emphasis on good sportsmanship, camaraderie and most importantly FUN!!!

Please use the following guidelines for the purpose of placing your child into a compatible instructional group: Tots (4-5), Beginners (6-9), Advanced beginners (8-12), Intermediates (11 & up),  Advanced (All ages) and Advanced (By Approval). If you do not find a compatible group, please note that we also offer private lesson, semi-private lessons and tailored to fit groups. Please feel free to call us at your convenience at 540-454-3059, if you any questions or are in need assistance in figuring out your personal situation.
