Youth Tennis & Pickleball Program

Lakeside Chautauqua offers a United States Tennis Association (USTA) 10 & Under QuickStart tennis program. This youth program introduces children to tennis by teaching the fundamentals. It's unique because it uses portable nets to create smaller courts, different size rackets and three different types of tennis balls that are introduced sequentially as children develop their strokes and learn to rally successfully. By using slower-moving and lower-bouncing balls, shorter and lighter rackets and smaller courts, children of all ages are able to grasp the fundamentals of tennis more easily and develop their skills more successfully.

Mondays-Thursdays at the Williams Tennis Campus:

1-1:30 p.m. (Ages 5-7)
2-2:45 p.m. (Ages 8-11)

Mondays & Wednesdays are tennis lessons. Tuesdays & Thursdays are pickleball lessons. All lessons are free.
