Our Indoor Facility

The Sport Center also houses a Fitness Room with cardio machines and weight equipment, as well as a six-bay indoor driving range and putting green. It is one of the newest and the nicest indoor facilities in New England.

Junior Program

Our Wentworth Junior Tennis Program utilizes the 10 and Under Quickstart method which enables kids to learn tennis in a quicker and much more fun atmosphere on the court.

The tennis industry has been using smaller racquets and nets for years but the balls and court size have been too fast and too big for smaller and beginner level children.  Quickstart addresses those problems by using a low-compression ball which is slower moving, making it easier for children to hit.  The court size is smaller based on age and ability, so no longer will we see a 4 year old hitting on a 78 foot court.  They will have their own 36 foot court to play on!

The Quickstart program makes it easier to learn, play and compete in tennis which is FUN! 

Our current junior session starts is underway and our next session begins January 4th.         
Juniors are permitted to join a session at anytime.
 Contact Kevin Christian at kchristian@wentworthbytheseacc.com to register your junior for one         of our programs.
