Kids Tennis Club



ROCKINGHAM COUNTY KIDS TENNIS CLUBS powered by Net Generation are designed to give children the opportunity to try tennis in a safe, supportive, extracurricular setting. With tennis sized right for age and ability, it's easier and more fun than ever for kids to play - even if they've never picked up a racket!  Net Generation, the new national youth intiative supported by USTA, provides Kids Tennis Clubs partners with curriculum, equipment, and program support.  

2017-18 RCS After School Kids Tennis Clubs are supported by a grant from the Rockingham County Community Foundation. 



A limited number of dates for After School Kids Tennis Clubs in Rockingham County are available to RCS PE teachers and child care providers for the 2018-19 school year.  There is no fee for this program.  

Kids Tennis Club program includes one-hour group clinics each week for 4 weeks led by a trained RC Tennis Community Coach and the school's PE Teacher or after school program staff.  All equipment is provided.  This program can be held in a gym, parking lot, playground or on a tennis court.
