Youth Tennis

Spring Tennis 2022 at the Kenan will follow the Net Generation USTA guidelines just as the introductory session did in the fall of 2021.  The Kenan tennis clinic is a celebration of a game where no one sits out, boys and girls have equal footing and kids learn a great game and make greater friendships. With a staged approached to learning, they’ll grow on and off the court. Children are asked to bring their own rackets but a small number of rackets are available for use.
