Juniors

Welcome to the revamped summer junior tennis program at the Wentworth! We have clinics for juniors of all ages and levels as we utilize the “Quickstart 10 and under format” with low compression balls and smaller equipment. Kids start with the red ball and learn the basics through a variety of skill building and friendly drills and games. As their  fundamentals are mastered and confidence builds, players will progress towards the Tournament Training Orange, Green and Yellow Ball Mini-Camps.   
The Red Ball Clinics meet twice per week in 3-week sessions.  The Tournament Training Mini-Camps run for 3 hours per day, 4 days per weekly session, and include a team play day each week. Choose one or more of the week-long     mini-camp sessions from among the 10 options below. Register your junior at the tennis pro shop or with Kevin by May 15th at kchristian@wentworthbytheseacc.com.    Here is the schedule:
