Junior Lessons

Ages 4 – 18

DeKalb Tennis Center participates in the Universal Tennis Academy for juniors. They offer group lessons for children ages 4 to 18 and all ability levels from beginner to southern ranked.

Center uses the Quick Start program as a tool to teach young juniors proper tennis fundamentals in a positive fun environment. This program allows players to play the game of tennis at an early stage of development through a systematic progression of scaled racquets, modified balls, and court sizes.
