Youth Tennis Programs in Kansas City


Tennis Lessons and Clinics for ages 3+

The J offers the USTA Quickstart format for beginners through our youth tennis programs in Kansas City for kids ages 10 & under. Quickstart Tennis is an exciting play format for learning tennis by utilizing specialized age appropriate equipment and shorter court dimensions. Participants will be picked up from CDC, After-School Program, and HBHA and returned as needed.

For more seasoned players, we offer Junior Clinics in both beginner and intermediate levels for those ages 9 and older.  This is a great youth tennis program in Kansas City that introduces fundamental strokes, basic strategy, keeping score, match play, and more! With flexible options for joining a clinic or creating your own, you'll find the right level of instruction and advancement for your child's skills (and schedule!)  

If groups aren't your things, The J also offers Private or Semi-Private lessons with our Tennis Pro, Todd Perkins. This provides the one on one personalized attention that will improve your child's game and take them to the next level, or just to learn at their own pace.
