Junior Tennis Lessons

Through our partnership with TopNotch Tennis Tuckahoe offers LOTS of options for all the tennis players in your family. In the spring, summer and fall we offer beginner and intermediate lessons, clinics for kids ages 3 - 15 (all of which maintain a 6:1 student-to-pro ratio), and a convenient parent/child clinic on the weekends so kids and adults can enjoy tennis at the same time. In the warm weather months, Tuckahoe offers fun and instructional camps for kids during spring break and the summer, with both half-day and one-hour long options to accommodate swim team practice schedules.

Kids can sign up for camps for the entire summer or on a week-by-week basis. And don’t forget to check out Camp Tuckahoe!
