Parents or a designated adult are expected to stay with the juniors attending a tennis session to assist with instruction. Both the child and parent enjoy participating in retrieving balls, feeding the lobster ball machine and watching their child learn this fun, life long sport. Sometimes the tables are turned and the kids get get great delight watching their parents try to return the balls lobbed from the ball machine.

 

Equipment: 

 

Bring an appropriate youth tennis racket for your child's age, and have your child wear sneakers with smooth soles.
