Tennis - serve them up, slam them down!
Tennis is the perfect social activity. It can be played as singles or doubles, and allows you to socialize while exercising. It has been shown to increase mental alertness and critical thinking. And it is a great cardio workout. At Cheverly Swim and Racquet, we are fortunate to have four of the finest red clay courts on the east coast. Although these courts are only available when the weather is good and the courts are dry, there are also har tru tennis courts that are always available and waiting for you!
When the clay courts are wet, or when the pool is closed, we ask that you do not walk or play on them. Instead, walk along the edge to play on the paved courts.
When the clay courts are dry, we invite you to come start a racket! on a premier playing surface.
Tennis clinics are offered every weekday from 10 am to noon and are open to all member children 7 - 18 years old, regardless of skill level. The clinics will break the kids into appropriate groups and offer lessons and matches to help each person improve their game.
Clinics are available over a two-hour time slot, and your child can stay as long as they want, but we recommend they start on the hour (either 10 to 11 or 11 to noon) The clinics are supervised by the CSR Tennis Pro, Bill Barnes, and some very talented teen athletes.
You can register your child(ren) or you can decide, on the fly, to drop in! They can come every day or just on the days that are best for them.
You can make a fun-filled sports morning for your child by bundling an early morning swim practice, with a one-hour tennis lesson - what a great way to spend your summer!
If your child has their own racquet, that is great, but if not, we will provide the racquets and balls! They must have appropriate tennis shoes.
All out, All game, All season!
If you want even more tennis, you can arrange for Individual, semi-private, and small group lessons for juniors and adults. Please contact Bill Barnes, our Tennis Pro, for scheduling. You can usually find him on the courts.
Individual lessons $30/hour
Group lessons $20/hour, 3 players minimum, 6 players maximum
