Our Mission

To bring you top quality tennis instruction, right here in your public parks, at reasonable rates.

Our Teaching Philosophy

Learn, laugh, run and play the game. We love tennis and we hope you’ll have a great time working with us. While we spend time on the fundamentals, we use a variety or drills and teaching games to make your lessons fun and challenging.

We strive to be simple, clear and positive, with the belief that building skills goes hand-in-hand with building self-esteem and self-confidence.

We always try to hold class if we possibly can. On a day there has been rain or questionable weather forecasts (or perhaps it has rained for days prior)
call (617) 661-PLAY (7529) 45 minutes prior to the start of class.
Please note: Most classes are given as part of a two, three or four hour block.
i.e. the 9am to noon block is 9-10am, 10-11am, 11-noon.
If we have to cancel a class within a block of classes then the teachers are dismissed for the rest of the block and all the classes that follow within that block will be cancelled as well.

For 2021 – all classes have rain make-ups. Past years’ rain credits are valid to apply to tennis lessons for one year from date of issue. No Refunds
