Junior Team Tennis

Junior Team Tennis is the platform we use to teach kids how to play a set and match. In our tennis program the kids learn the strokes in class.  Junior Team Tennis allows the kids to learn how to use the strokes in a match setting and to learn how to play a match.

The child must be enrolled in a tennis class at McFetridge Sports Center or be a consistent weekly private lesson of a McFetridge Sports Center employed Tennis Pro to be eligible to try out for our Junior Team Tennis Teams.


Try Out Information

McFetridge Sports Center has Orange Ball Teams, Green Ball Teams, U12 Yellow Ball Teams, and U13-18 Yellow Ball Teams. Participants must be enrolled in a class prior to tryouts.
