SW19 Tennis Academy

Kansas City, MO 66206


Overview

All sessions are open to players of all skill levels, unless otherwise noted. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own tennis instruction needs can be addressed throughout the week.

All Skills: Geared towards all ability levels. Includes concentrated work to develop the proper fundamentals and a mix of drilling and match play.

10 and Under Tennis: The“10 and Under Tennis” program features the USTA’s successful new teaching format. This is an exciting way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts.
