Tennis School

 

Wimbledon 109 Tennis School consists of three, multi week sessions. Tennis lessons are available seven days a week at hours convenient to juniors and adults alike. Our Tennis Professionals are here to provide tennis instruction to all ability levels. We offer private, semi-private and group lessons as well as a comprehensive Junior Development program. Membership at Wimbledon 109 is not required to enroll in the Tennis School. The advantage of our Tennis School is that students have the same instructor at the same time and on the same day each week. The student can progress and grow with consistency through the session and then have the opportunity to either move up or continue to work on specific areas.
