The International Country Club junior tennis program strives to help every junior enjoy the sport of tennis. Whether providing sound technical teaching, emphasizing the value of perseverance and hard work, or encouraging efforts beyond the court, the goal of the program is the “whole” player.
Our year round program includes five sessions of weekly classes from the fall through the spring. During the summer the program offers five weeks of daily morning classes.
