Grand Slam's 10 And Under Center!

10 & UNDER PROGRAM

Grand Slam Play Days are designed for various levels of players to participate in a fun, low pressure, yet competitive setting. A Grand Slam Play Day allows kids to have multiple matches with and against a variety of players under the supervision of 10 & Under Tennis Director, Ina Durcakova Ball, and GS teaching staff. Whether the objective is the next step of playing in USTA-sanctioned tournaments or simply an additional tennis play opportunity, Play Days provide an informal yet competitive setting without the threat of elimination. Development and enhancement of skills in a fun atmosphere will enhance their love of the game!

All Play Events are Saturday evenings from 6:15-8:00pm; $20 per child.

JUNIOR TOURNAMENTS

A 10 & Under tournament is a great way to introduce kids to the thrill of competition by getting on the court, playing a variety of styles and making new friends.  ALL 10 & Under tournaments will be round robin. Competing in 10 & Under tournaments emphasizes cooperation as well as competition; the players are split up into two teams and the format is round robin rather than elimination. Instead of a “winner” at the end, there is a “winning team”. This type of tournament participation will help build their confidence and encourages player development and advancement. ALL Regular ball tournaments will be using regular scoring format.

Saturday Evenings – 6:30-8:30pm.  $30.00 entry fee.  Please call the club for more information.
