We can partner with a local park or set up courts on any safe, flat surface close to your organization. We'll bring a tennis trainer or coach and equipment—you bring the players! Absolutely no experience is required, and we will group the staff accordingly based on level. Fill out our form and let us know a bit about your organization or business to get started.
Mix and Match Tennis: In Mix and Match Tennis, play the sport with people at your skill level once a week, and then head out to a bar or restaurant for some food and beverages. Sessions for “Newbies” include instruction from a tennis pro. This program is currently available in Saratoga, Schenectady, and Penfield, New York.
Find Your Level: Find Your Level events are designed to help beginner and returning players acquaint (or reacquaint) themselves with the sport and play with other participants at a similar skill level. This program is currently available at various New Jersey locations.
