Summer Quick-Start Tennis

Rip & Rally (rising 1st to 4th graders)

For beginner and advanced beginner juniors ages 5 to 8, with an emphasis on technique, learning to rally, and play points.

Future Stars (rising 5th to 7th graders)

This is our entry level for junior ages 9 to 13. The goal for this group is to be able to rally and play matches in 6 weeks.

 

Jr High Performance (ages 10-13, 14-18, lower intermediate thru advanced juniors)

If you are a junior who is dedicated to working hard to improve your competitive tennis, this is a truly unique opportunity to advance your tennis by learning from one of the most successful High Performance Coaches in the Midwest. Take advantage of Coach Kobelt’s proven teaching system on GTC’s clay courts. 

"All of today’s top hard court players grew up training on clay! ‘One shot’ tennis is dead. American juniors need to learn to dig harder, grind longer, slide better, and get dirtier. Playing even a little bit on clay goes a long way." -2011 Patrick McEnroe, USTA Director of Player Development
