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.  


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.  We can also offer an extended Kids Tennis Club program that includes the ACE enrichment curriculum.  All equipment is provided.  This program can be held in a gym, parking lot, playground or on a tennis court. Our fall Kids Tennis Club program is supported by a Net Generation Pathway Grant from USTA Southern.
